A number of labels are often attached to the Generation Z, such as “horoscope lovers,” “born-digital,” “eligible bachelor.” While these labels appear to give insight into some possible personality traits, they also stereotype and generalize a diverse range of people that belong to this generation.

In this special episode of “What’s the Talk”, CGTN invited six young people from different countries and regions to meet in the metaverse to share their experiences and discuss whether labels can define Gen Z. Kate Kaligaeva, a student from Belarus, shared her views about her “fighting nation” label. #whatsthetalk

In This Story: metaverse

A metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds focused on social connection.

In futurism and science fiction, the term is often described as a hypothetical iteration of the Internet as a single, universal virtual world that is facilitated by the use of virtual and augmented reality headsets.

The metaverse is something which many in the early 2020s are actively engaged in developing: an entirely online, virtual and alternative reality, in which people will be able to conduct many forms of business and social interaction – virtually.

The movement towards a metaverse gathered significant pace and attention when Facebook’s parent company rebranded itself to “meta” in 2021.
