Abstract

This chapter investigates the views of parents and guardians of Millennials who took part in a clicks-and-mortar adult and community education project based around learning about local heritage and expressing understanding of it through digital and mixed media collages. Issues considered range from the built environment, with the project taking place in various settings, from community centers to church hall, through to online issues, where a dedicated resource separated from the rest of the internet was developed for exploratory learning. Parents and guardians express how they think the needs of Millennials should be taken into account in the provision of education and community activity. The chapter concludes that there are many community resources available for Millennials, but the coordination of their use is the barrier preventing Millennials having the experience of previous generations that had fulfilled teenage years.
