Rustat Conference on Intergenerationality: how can we bridge generational divides?
For the first time, the 2017 General Election revealed that age was a stronger determinant of voting patterns than class. In the EU Referendum, polling shows young voters overwhelmingly supported Remain while older people backed Brexit.
The data suggests a widening gap between generations, not only politically but also socially and economically. How will this impact our society in the years ahead? To what extent can we reduce divides through changes in housing, institutions and technology? Does it make sense to lump people together in generational groups anyway?
This Rustat conference will draw together experts from a wide range of ages and backgrounds to explore how generations and individuals can work together.
