Third Sector Podcast #6: Connecting with Generation Z

Emily Burt talks to young people about supporting charities, and discusses sexism and racism in the development sector with Shaista Aziz and Alexia Pepper de Caires, co-founders of NGO Safe Space. Plus: Liam Kay finds out about an innovative awareness campaign

Our sixth monthly podcast looks at how charites can engage Generation Z: those under the age of 25. 

Deputy editor Emily Burt talks to Amanda Chetwynd-Cowieston from the British Youth Council, the National Youth Agency’s Lydia Allen, and Alex Cheney, a volunteer at the sexual health charity Brook and the period poverty organisation Bloody Good Period, about the kind of support they want to give to charity.

For more on this topic, check out the cover feature in the latest edition of Third Sector, out now.

Burt also speaks to Shaista Aziz and Alexia Pepper de Caires, co-founders of NGO Safe Space, about disrupting patriarchy, racism and colonialism in international charities. 

Later, Liam Kay talks to Equally Ours chief executive Ali Harris to find out more about the human rights charity's eye-catching, innovative campaign.
