In Spain there are some 9.5 million people over the age of 65, or 20% of the population. Of these, more than two million live alone. Alongside this reality, we find a young population that communicates, mainly through technology.
If in all generations there have been communication leaps, in recent years, this gap seems to have become abysmal.
How do the old and the young relate to each other? Do we really have such different concepts of life? Is the so-called intergenerational connection possible? Do we speak the same language?
These questions will be some of those addressed in an interesting and surely entertaining dialogue between Leopoldo Abadía and Joan Folch. The meeting, organized by Omnes and the Centro Académico Romano Foundation, will be broadcasted live on YouTube on the following day. Wednesday, October 20 from 7:30 p.m. onwards.
Leopoldo Abadía, born in Zaragoza, 88 years old, has been married to his wife for 61 years and is the father of 12 children, grandfather of 49 grandchildren and great-grandfather. Writer, economist and industrial engineer doctor.
Joan Folch, 22 years old, student of the Faculty of Economics at the University of Navarra and influencer, with tens of thousands of followers on instagram.
