Sorry we killed it is a podcast recorded in Brussels, produced by the European Youth Forum and hosted by Priyanka Shankar from Are We Europe. We talk about issues affecting today’s young people in Europe, and beyond. We discuss algorithms, pandas, death and everything in between. We celebrate the dynamism of the young generation, far from the “lazy young people” clichés, and the way our personal behaviour and experience connect with a bigger ‘collective” and can have a positive impact on our community and our society.

    Young people have more & more access to cheap flights, and opportunities to explore the world. Even evolving to challenges like visiting 30 countries by age 30.

    Why are Millenials...?
