In recent years the difference in attitudes between generations - but also within generations - towards the pillars of our modern society has become more pronounced; the pillars of democracy are being questioned, the attitudes towards the EU between old and young seemingly indicates a fundamentally opposite perception of reality, attitudes towards migration are more polarizing than ever, and a deep-rooted pessimism permeates young people's perception of the economy and their financial prospects as inequality widens. While generations always differ, the difference between old and young seem more stark than ever. How can these gaps be bridged? How can leaders and policymakers contribute to mitigating this widening gap? How can democracy survive if our common foundations across generations are being eroded?
