The gap between the rich and the poor also opens up in Germany. Political, economic and social contradictions collide and endanger social cohesion in our modern society. Although this cohesion is of such great importance for the stability of a community and democracy. The ZEIT Foundation Ebelin and Gerd Bucerius and the Veranstaltungsforum Holtzbrinck Publishing Group will address this issue with the series of events "What keeps our society together?". The series of events started in 2017.
German society is shrinking and aging. Generational conflicts are already taking shape on many different levels. Be it in care, in questions of political representation, or in future questions of financial security or climate change. What responsibility do the generations bear for each other? How can we meet the different demands and requirements of the generations? The generations in Germany and Europe could learn a lot from each other in order to master the challenges of the future. So are we lacking a common utopia for the future? How do we solve the generational conflicts politically and socially and how do we shape the future together?
