The pandemic has exposed many unresolved challenges for older members of society – social care, the digital divide, loneliness - sparking a conversation about ageing societies that is often deferred.

In this episode, Christa Möller-Metzger from the European Network of Green Seniors argues it's time for a new generational compromise built around connection, participation, and solidarity and to create inclusive spaces and build a society where people of all ages and backgrounds meet and live together.
