Leopoldo Abadía and Joan Folch to speak on intergenerational connection

How do the elderly and the young relate to each other? Do we really have such different concepts of life? Do we speak the same language? This is the topic that will be the focus of the Omnes - CARF meeting on Wednesday, October 20.

Maria José Atienza-October 14, 2021-Reading time: 2 minutes

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.
