Description

The Philippines is undoubtedly the social media capital of the world in terms of content consumption. However, it has yet to take full advantage of its potential in the realm of content production.

Our Awesome Planet (OAP), the country’s premier lifestyle blog, and Mommy Mundo (MM), the country’s most active parenting resource and community, have teamed up for ZENTENNIALS: The Making of the Greatest Filipino Generation scheduled for September 9, 2017, at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura Taguig.

The very first conference of its kind, ZENTENNIALS: The Making of the Greatest Filipino Generation will gather the country’s top experts, advocates, and influencers from the digital, academe, business, and parenting spheres. More than gaining a deeper understanding of Generation Z, ZENTENNIALS hopes to school Zentennials and their parents with the proper knowledge and skills to become successful content producers. The vision of ZENTENNIALS is to transform the Philippines into the social media capital of the world in terms of content production, bringing the Filipinos’ creativity and ingenuity into the global arena.

ABOUT GEN Z

Generation Z, also known as Centennials, Post-Millennials, or iGeneration, are kids born in 2000 or later. Now in their teens or high school, the Gen Z population numbers some 2 billion globally. In the Philippines, Gen Z or the Zentennials make up roughly 30 percent of the population and only two countries in the world that have a big population of kids of this generation.
