LocationAuditorium 2 Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation
The event will be broadcast live via the Foundation’s Youtube and will be available at this page.
What are the main inequalities between generations? Is there employment for the most educated generation ever? Are public finances sustainable on the long run? What natural resources are we leaving for future generations? And how to assess if a policy is fair for all generations?
For a whole day, the discussion will focus on a new social contract that ensures a fairer future for all generations.
The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, through the Future Forum, has been developing since 2018 an initiative with the aim of bringing Intergenerational Fairness to the public discussion and to the political agenda.
In this scope, the Foundation promoted several studies that analyse the main inequalities between generations in different areas of public policy: housing, public finances, labour market, and environment. Besides, and to encourage fair public policies for all generations, we identified the factors that contributed to the implementation of long-term policies and created a methodology that assess the impact of public policies on the present and future generations.
This event, commissioned by Pedro Pita Barros, closes five years of work dedicated to intergenerational justice.
