The World Economic Forum was held in Davos, Switzerland from 17-20th January 2017. As soon as this major global event was announced and planned, the Millennials decided to step in and take over the show. The end result was participation by more than 50 young people at the Davos Forum.
Being young, free, and wild has always come at a price, and that price is somewhat larger in 2017 than it has been in the past. Dealing with student loans, high rents, and unstable labor markets is a challenge every Millennial has to face. The challenge becomes greater if you consider the large number of Millennials who are dealing with a variety of disabilities. So let’s consider just how large these challenges are for this demographic and ask whether modern society is addressing this issue properly and efficiently.≈
As you all should know by now, the Yum Generation aka the Millennials Generation is the new force to be reckoned with when it comes to shaping the world as we know it. One of the major features of this generation – which has entitled them to carry the name Yum Generation – is their obsession with food. One can even call them foodaholics. And when we talk about the relationship between the Millennials and food, we don’t mean just the through-the-roof number of social media posts with photos of meals and snacks, we are talking about the comprehensive change this generation has brought to the food industry already. This generation’s influence has set in motion a radical change towards eating good, healthy, more eco-friendly foods. Millennials have also started the trend of consuming nutritious, fresh, locally-grown ingredients. So what can we expect in the year ahead of us, which trends will this generation establish in the food industry in 2017, and what will that mean for the future of society as well as for the industries affected?
