The New Generational Divide

Festival Marquee
Sun 29 Sep

Class was once Britain’s great divide. Now, some say, it’s age, as the era of affordable housing has given way to zero-hour contracts, student debt and renting-for-life, and the young face fallout from Brexit. We examine intergenerational fairness with economist-journalist Dame Frances Cairncross; co-founder of proEU advocacy group Our Future, Our Choice, Femi Oluwole; and Ella Whelan, author and journalist, and co-convener of the Battle of Ideas festival.
