Death by selfie

Young people have more & more access to cheap flights, and opportunities to explore the world. Even evolving to challenges like visiting 30 countries by age 30. But with the growing urgency to save our planet and reach net-zero emissions, isn’t it hypocritical to prioritise our own experiences over our climate change concerns? Special guests: Johan Lolos, travel photographer and Kyrill Hartog, Co-Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Are We Europe Host: Priyanka Shankar. Executive producer: Toon Vos.

Young people are under more and more pressure to succeed, in a society and economic environment that makes it more and more difficult. On top of this, we are always comparing ourselves with others. How does it impact our mental health? Do we have to be ‘good’ at everything all the time? Special guests: Laura, Youth Advocate for Plan International and Nikita Sanaullah, Policy Officer at the European Youth Forum Host: Priyanka Shankar. Executive producer: Toon Vos.

Is your tote bag killing pandas?

Is your tote bag killing pandas? We’re all struggling to do our part when it comes to recycling, eating vegetarian or even riding a bike. All this in an effort to tackle climate change.

Special guests: MEP Magid Magid and Jonas Mallisse, Too Good To Go Host: Priyanka Shankar. Executive producer: Toon Vos.

Starring: Research specialist and video game author, Elizabeth Maler, and youth activist and gaming enthusiast, Manuel Gil Host: Priyanka Shankar. Executive producer: Toon Vos.

Why are Millenials...?

Millennials are killing everything. Brands, culture, industries; we will stop at nothing. The media clearly wants to put the blame on young people for bringing change. Why are we such a controversial generation and do we really have a different perspective on life?
