For Millennials, learning is not a passive activity – it is participatory, immersive, and fun. Anything short of this is simply not relevant.
Believe It Is Essential to Connect wtih Causes
Over three-quarters (77%) of Millennials say they believe it is essential to connect to causes that are important to them, a trait more important to them than it is to older generations.
Millennials are Good Citizens.
Involved and volunteering in their communities, Millennials exhibit a genuine concern for people and the environment. As gleaned from the 2009 PGAV Destinations survey “Survival of the Greenest,” this age group is single-handedly fueling the Green trend. Millennials care about environmental issues, expecting attractions to demonstrate a commitment to sustainable practices.
Millennials represent a significant societal change in the desire of travelers to incorporate volunteerism and sustainable practices in destinations.
Implication: Millennials are not your traditional guests. They do not take leisure trips “just because,” but are looking for something that resonates with their need to make a difference.
