For a year, the Sussexes, through their charity organization, have been conversing with people within the age bracket of 13-24, to understand their perspective on social media. They have also been taking inputs from parents to fathom their outlook on life in the digital age. After a year of “structured discussions”, the Archewell Foundation released its first insight report that included all the “key takeaways” from their conversations. This report came just a few days after the Sussexes held a summit to address this subject.
