"Nissan Generation Next is all about helping the best and brightest on the road to success. It is open to anyone who is passionate, committed and working hard to achieve their goals.

Our Nissan Generation Next ambassadors are truly inspirational. They only see what is possible and their ability to forge ahead and to find creative solutions to the challenges and obstacles that they encounter is something that we at Nissan are only too happy to support.

These people really are the leaders of tomorrow."
