Generation 2012: What are the challenges ahead?

Event type:
Location: Stratford Town Hall, 29 Broadway Street, London, E15 4BQ

Just days before the Olympics start, British Future would like to invite you to an interactive panel debate  on Generation 2012, the group some people have called “the lost generation”.

Whether you are between 18 and 24, or not, join us to discuss the issues they face along with the panel of Ian Birrell, contributing editor, Daily Mail, former deputy editor of the Independent and speechwriter to David Cameron, Peter Kellner, president of YouGov, Carlene Firmin, founder of Girls Against Gangs, Danielle Grufferty, vice-president of the NUS and Max Wind-Cowie who runs the Progressive Conservatism Project at Demos. This event will be chaired by Sunder Katwala, director of British Future, and hosted by Newham Council as part of the Ideas Olympiad.

Come along this Thursday at Stratford Town Hall, round the corner from the Olympic Village, where the panel and the audience get to ask: what are the challenges ahead for Generation 2012 so we don’t become the “lost generation”?  In this session we will ask 18-24s in the audience what is the one thing they think the government needs to put at the top of its priority list, and discuss whether this generation thinks that their lives will be substantially different from their parents, and if so how.

Demand for this event is high so be sure to book your tickets fast!
