To mark the launch of its new inquiry, the group will be publishing a collection of essays exploring the extent to which there is a growing generational divide in attitudes, experiences and expectations. The essay collection and this inquiry will seek to investigate ways in which old, young and those in between can be brought together in a new social compact.
This event will offer attendees the opportunity to hear from contributers to this essay collection, and the APPG's Chair, Chuka Umunna MP.
Confirmed contributions to the collection include:
- Bobby Duffy, Managing Director, Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute
- Caroline Macfarland, Director, Common Vision (CoVi)
- Paul McGarry, Head of the Greater Manchester Ageing Hub, Manchester City Council
- David Robinson OBE, Founder of Community Links
- Ralph Scott, Research Manager, The Challenge
- Alex Smith, CEO and founder, North London Cares, South London Cares and Manchester Cares
- David Williams, CEO, St Monica Trust (the Trust featured in the recent Channel 4 documentary Old People’s Home For 4 Year Olds)
The event will begin with presentations of analysis of the generational differences in the most recent British Social Attitudes survey and of the wider implications of generational divides for our politics. This will be followed by a panel discussion exploring these themes and in greater detail.
Each attendee will be provided with a copy of the essay collection and the discussion - with contributions from the audience welcome - will help shape the group's inquiry going forward.
