This year, more than 20 million Gen Z’s entered Russian schools and universities. They are definitely not the same as the generation born in the 1990s. What will they be in ten years, how can they change the country, and how are they different from previous generations? Today, sociologists from different countries agree that since the middle of the 20th century there was at least four generations of young people with their unique features and characteristics. What should be done for young people so that they do not lose those unique features? What projects are there for the younger generation? How to involve young people in solving socially significant issues of the country?
