The New Generations

Politics is experiencing a generational shift. People born after 1980 face starkly different economic, social, and technological prospects than previous generations. In almost every country, generational cleavages on core challenges of government are increasingly salient.

Our Challenges of Government Conference 2019 looks at how those under 40 are changing the world and at the most important issues for millennials and Gen Z – from technology to climate change to identity.

Confirmed speakers range from Germany’s youngest mayor (Marian Schreier) to the youngest Minister ever appointed in Malaysia (Syed Saddiq), and include activists, researchers and practitioners from every continent.
