The results of the European Union Referendum deep divides between regions, but the intergenerational divide was starker still. According to the think tank the Resolution Foundation, “No region of Britain voted as strongly to stay in the EU as did those aged 18-24, and none voted as strongly to leave as those aged 65 and over.“
Add to that the so-called 'generation rent' priced out of home ownership, stagnating graduate pay, soaring university fees and a growing cultural gap on issues like immigration, and it’s clear that the prospects of today’s under 30s differ sharply from their parents.
Join us, as part of the Labout Party Conference fringe in Liverpool, for a Question Time style event with academics, political voices and members of the Young Fabians' own policy networks to discuss how we can
meet the challenge of intergenerational inequality head on.
The event is taking place a short distance from the Conference's secure zone, so you don't need a pass to attend. All Young Fabian members are welcome.
