Generation Z or Gen Z is referred to as the generation born after generation Y. Gen Z is relied on to be the nation's next generation towards a Golden Indonesia 2045. Apart from being the nation's next generation towards a Golden Indonesia 2045, Gen Z's role is also expected to be active in the SDGs.
