The American Dream Is the cultural motif that has inspired North America for the last century. Work hard, save, sacrifice and you will get ahead. America offers the freedom of upward mobility. But over the last decade the American Dream has been called into question. For many, it no longer seems to be working. The Millennial Dream is a feature length documentary that explores the values that may replace the cultural motif known as The American Dream.

As the Millennial generation becomes the most significant portion of the work force what will change about what we want from our jobs, what education will look like, what kinds of companies will succeed in the new economy and what kinds of living communities will be desired? And what can cities and regions do to attract the new economy? Interviews with experts such as Seth Godin and the personal reflections of young workers will stir debate and dialogue around what might emerge as the Millennial Dream.

Challenging the Status Quo

I’m gonna let you in on a little secret: if you want to create meaning, you have to challenge the status quo. Most entrepreneurs are motivated by this idea of doing things differently. It’s built into our DNA. We become entrepreneurs because we’re convinced that...

The Best Enjoy What They’re Doing

Image from Flickr user Yellow Something that drives me crazy is when other students tell me there are no opportunities for youth to make meaningful impacts in the community. I recently travelled to Halifax to attend the 2015 Enactus Canada Atlantic Regional...
