Document Type


Publication Date



Much has been said about Filipino millennials. Born in the 1980s and 1990s, they are often described in passionate terms: they can seize the day, pursue their dreams, and travel the world.

Drawing from the empirical work of 17 scholars from around the country, this collection presents an alternative view.

An agenda-setting collection, this will be useful for researchers and practitioners who wish to understand the state of the youth and the emergence of new generations.
