Listening to Voices of the Future
an invitation to contribute to a special issue of Policy Quarterly on cohortbased or generation-based policies
We would like to invite people to explore ways that public policies can be designed to facilitate the process of change. Our focus is specifically and deliberately on generational change – how society can best enable change when younger and older generations have very different views on what is important, what is possible and what is desirable. We want to explore how successive generations can shape the future so that it better reflects their issues and concerns. These changes do not concern just age, but can cover a broad canvas of themes related to issues such as gender or ethnicity, or the environment.
