COFACE Families-Europe and its German member Arbeitsgemeinschaft der deutschen Familien organisationen (AGF) are jointly organising the conference 'The impact of digitalisation on 21st century families' on 7-8 November in Berlin. Around 100 key stakeholders will get together to discuss this topic, aiming to stimulate debate, put some practical examples out there, and take a peek at what the future will bring. The conference will focus on families as new consumers and new workers, but ultimately assess to what extent these trends are creating new families (social impact).
Through a series of workshops and networking sessions, we will try to better understand the impact of digitalisation on families, identify the relevant EU policy areas of competence and formulate “family-friendly” policies to harness the opportunities of digitalisation while minimising the risks.
