At our Young Fabian Fringe at Fabian Society Summer conference this May, we will be exploring the question:
“Are Millennials destined to be the Lost Generation?”
It is 10 years since the Global Financial Crash of 2008, and the Millennials are likely to become the generation that rebuild Britain without reaping the benefits economically or socially. Over the course of the event, we will be discussing a range of policy areas that explore the impact of the recession on the prospects of our generation. As well as the immediate social and economic damage our generation has suffered in the past decade, it now faces specific longer-term social challenges such as restricted access to the housing market, the reality of the skills gap, underemployment, limited social mobility and economic security in old age.
The Millennials form the foundation blocks for the rebuilding of our economy and society as a whole, and while the generations that come after us will build from there and prosper, the potential of our generation will be lost. In spite of the hopes and opportunities the Millenials grew up with, will it be subsequent generations that prosper and will the potential of the Millenials be lost?
We will be joined by:
- Fahmida Rahman, Resolution Foundation
- Baroness Glenys Thornton, former Chief Executive of the Young Foundation
- Reuben Young, Director of PricedOut
- Deeba Syed (chair), Young Fabians Executive
