Young people gluing themselves to roads, the Friday for Future movement, Last Generation…
If you have followed the media recently, you are probably aware that the younger generation cares about the environment and their future, and that they are willing to go to the extreme to prove their point. Even though 70% of the younger generation think that gluing yourself to the street is not the right way to deal with the current situation, the prevailing feeling is that something must be done about climate change (80%)*.

We asked GrECo’s youngest generation for their opinions:
The world is becoming increasingly uncertain. That’s why it’s so important for companies to look at risk management and insurance. I want to help companies on this journey and work with them to develop the right strategies to improve their resilience.
I chose a career in the insurance industry as a young person because of its inherent stability, the ability to make a meaningful impact on individuals and businesses, its dynamic nature, and the potential for financial success. It aligns with my aspirations and offers a fulfilling and promising career path.
As a young newcomer in the insurance industry, I particularly appreciate the opportunity to assist people in challenging life situations and provide them with security. This industry allows me to continually learn and evolve in various areas, and I relish the teamwork and collaboration with colleagues to collectively find the best solutions for our clients.
As an insurance broker, I value the opportunity to assist businesses in ensuring they are optimally protected and financially secure. This role allows me to comprehend the specific needs of various enterprises and offer tailored insurance solutions. I feel fulfilled knowing that I have a positive impact on others’ businesses by helping them guard against unforeseen risks.
The best insurance is the one you never have to use. Nevertheless, in the world of increasing uncertainty and growing risks it is our task to mitigate the negative impacts of unforseeable events. A big motivation for me is helping companies to strive to ensure a risk-resilient work environment through implementation of adequate risk and insurance related strategies.
If carefully designed and managed, a captive is a tool in the risk manager’s toolbox for large companies that can help build resilience to future transformation risks as a result of climate change, amongst other things.
If you have followed the media recently, you are probably aware that the younger generation cares about the environment and their future, and that they are willing to go to the extreme to prove their point.
A third of the younger generations believe climate change is the biggest threat of our time, and over half believe they don’t have the power to do anything about it.
