Listening to Young People Today for Better Social Policies Tomorrow - 27-28 February
The OECD Centre for Opportunity and Equality (COPE) and The 89 Initiative are organising a high-level conference on “Listening to Young People Today for Better Social Policies Tomorrow” on 27th-28th February 2020 at the LSE European Institute in London.

The conference will focus on future directions for social policy-making and implementation, in particular looking at what are the social risks that matter to different generations and to foreign-born and native-born populations.

What actions can governments take to address these risks, and is there a role for intergovernmental organisations? The issue of social and environmental policies are also playing an important role in the conversation, together with social mobility, housing affordability, future of the job market and economic insecurity.

It will also discuss the forms of interactions between the public and policy making institutions and within administrations. How can governments reach out to stakeholders and individuals to inform the policy making process? What is the interaction of this process with civic education and democratic participation?

The conference will bring together young participants from different European countries for the first half day (afternoon of February 27th), to take part in roundtable groups to discuss issues such as housing, social mobility, economic insecurity and the future of work with OECD and 89 Initiative facilitators. The goal of this preparatory day is to craft policy proposals to be presented on February 28th in plenary.

The second day - open to everyone - comprises panel discussions between key thinkers and experts in these fields, from a range of disciplines.

The panel discussion combined with roundtable debates on policy proposals, will result in a post-conference policy report, directed towards MEPs and other key stakeholders in EU affairs and in OECD member states.
