Saatchi & Saatchi London is behind a new creative campaign for Deutsche Telekom starring five-time Grammy award-winner Billie Eilish. #WHATWEDONEXT shines a light on Gen Z tech positivity with a universal message of digital optimism.

The campaign breaks internationally in line with UN International Youth Day, demonstrating the power and potential of youth in creating a better future. At its heart is a two-minute film building into a wide reaching digital and social campaign, featuring Billie Eilish and a host of inspirational Gen Z contributors with real stories to tell.

In the film (footage shot pre Covid-19), Gen Z turn the negative perception of their tech usage on its head, showing how connected technology is actually a powerful tool to affect the things they really care about, from campaigning for the climate and human rights, to creativity and even cyber security.
