PERIOD: From Cause Campaign To National Movement

Whether as activists, influencers, or entrepreneurs, today’s 16-24 year olds continue to take socio-political issues into their own hands, speaking out in creative ways about the causes that matter to them. So how are Gen Z pushing the boundaries of social and political movements in ways that differ to the generations that came before them? 

21 year old Nadya Okamoto will share the story of her own youth-built movement as the founder of PERIOD - the largest youth-run NGO in women’s health, committed to ending period poverty for this generation and beyond. From running for office, to starting up her own Gen Z consultancy made up entirely of 16-24 year olds themselves, she’ll bring insights from her time mobilizing young people to make a change, and how we can all stand to be inspired by the next generation of disrupters.
