Like Millenials

A “Millenial” is defined as someone born between 1981 - 1997. Our Millenial Planner, Michelle, and Gen X-er Engineer Rob, share their perspectives on the topic of the “Millenial experience,” and challenge the current narrative.

Age-ism is a recurring and troubling theme as is the reality of how it may be ever-present, but simply being dealt with differently in an era of tech-savviness.

Michelle quotes transportation planner Sam Schwartz and asks, “It’s not about asking ‘How do we plan for Millenials, but how do we plan like Millenials?”

Rob points out the two different types of people who won’t amount to much:
People who won’t listen to what they’re told, and;
People who don’t do anything but what they’re told

The Plangineers discuss an industry article called “Good Planning Knows No Age” by Liz Howson (Mar/Apr 2017 Ontario Planning Journal)
