On the occasion of the European Day of Solidarity between Generations and against the backdrop of a global health crisis, this exciting conference aimed at offering a space for dialogue between generations.

With a focus on Health and Care, our speakers discussed the ways in which different generations can support each other to address the challenges arising from the Covid-19 pandemic and how progressive politics can be at the forefront in the policy action response to these challenges.

This conference was organised by FEPS, the Young European Socialists (YES) and the European Seniors Organisation (ESO) together with the Party of European Socialists (PES).
