Millennials live in an incredibly fast, information filled world but they are aware of global problems. Welcoming the Next Generation of Preppers
Regardless of what you may think or feel about the millennial generation, they are the next generation preppers, and there are certain things about them that have far exceeded their parents’ generation. Information, for example. All they’ve ever known is to Google search. They have little to no concept of the Dewey decimal system, cassette players, or floppy disks. Their world is incredibly fast, information filled, and they are very aware of the problems we face on a global level. Their perspective is more global than country-oriented.
Though many of them tend to be more emotionally driven than fact-driven, that will come with time, age, and wisdom. Weren’t we all emotionally charged in our twenties? Their awareness at their age completely blows ours out of the water and that is one of the reasons that this next generation preppers coming up will be drastically different than what we know and practice. Much like the differences (much more so than between other generations) between the childhoods, their approach to prepping will have a different makeup.
What they lack are the experience and skills that we as older preppers have. These skills are vitally important to pass on to the next gen! As it says in the article, “How do we go about connecting next generation preppers with older preppers? Indeed, that is the question.” Read on!
