Event description

Description

NB: The date of this event has been changed, and will now take place on Monday 4th December

Following the conclusion of its inquiry into immigrant integration, the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Social Integration is launching its next inquiry: looking at intergenerational connection.

Date and time: Monday 4 December 2017, 15:00 - 16:30

Location: Committee Room 5, Houses of Parliament, Westminster, London SW1A 0AA

To mark the launch of its new inquiry, the group will be publishing a collection of essays exploring connection across the generations and the extent to which there is a growing generational divide in attitudes and outlooks. The essay collection and this inquiry will seek to investigate and lay out policy solutions which would bring together different generations in a new social compact, whilst this launch event will offer attendees the opportunity to hear from contributers to the essay collection, and the APPG's Chair, Chuka Umunna MP.

The session will begin with two presentations of original analysis of the generational differences in the most recent British Social Attitudes Survey and of the wider implications of generational divides for our politics from:

  • Bobby Duffy, Managing Director, Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute
  • Richard Bell, Head of Public Affairs, Policy and Research, The Challenge

This will be followed by discussion between APPG members and the following contributors to the essay collection:

  • Caroline Macfarland, Director, Common Vision (CoVi)
  • Donna McDermott, Head of Community Services, St Monica Trust
  • David Robinson OBE, Founder of Community Links
  • Alex Smith, CEO and founder, North London Cares, South London Cares and Manchester Cares

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.
