MY GENERATION’S MANIFESTO

As we’ve discussed over the past week, your generation (Generation Y) has been observed, dissected and analyzed by this country’s psychologists and sociologists; a detailed psychological profile has been written and rewritten and fully digested by American society. The one thing that is missing from all this research and discussion is what you, Gen Y, believe about yourself and what you believe you’re capable of. For this post you are required to continue the process of defining your generation’s identity by composing the final document of this generational research: Write a manifesto!

What is a manifesto? A manifesto is a public declaration of principles and intentions, often political in nature. However, because you are not a political party (in this case we’ll call you a movement) your manifesto’s sole focus will not be on law and government, but on what your generation’s principals and intentions are for all aspects of society.

The three most important things to consider when it comes to composing your manifesto:

  • Who we are
  • What we want
  • What we’re going to do

If you’ve forgotten what a manifesto can look like, watch the Gen Y Manifesto  video and refresh your memory.
