Gen Why Media Project is a series of crowd-sourced, collaborative productions articulating the massive social paradigm shift currently taking place.
- Under 35 (Generation Y)
- Gen Why Media Project is a series of crowd-sourced, collaborative productions articulating the massive social paradigm shift currently taking place. We explore how our generation’s collective beliefs, shared responsibility and irresistible desire to change the world will be what saves the planet and brings humanity together.
- Gen Why is you. We are the spawn of globalization, technology, connectivity, environmental crisis, and have more questions than the authorities can answer. We believe in independent thinking, cultural alternatives, progressive politics, racial integration, art, music, creativity, peace, compassion, intelligence and respect for all living things.Right now over half of the world’s population is under 35. We are the largest, most connected, most educated, most diverse generation in history. We have the collective power to create whatever we want.
The GWMP consists of a feature documentary film, a 24-part webseries and web/mobile application to promote engagement and locality.
Dominant Media Forms
- Gen Why Media Project is proposing a new society through peer-participation, interactivity and creative collaboration. It is a manifestation of our irresistible desire to change the world and our unprecedented ability to catalyze a mass social movement.
Statement of Principles
- So here’s what we’re going to do: create a crowd-sourced story of future as a feature-length documentary film, web-series, blog and series of live events.
