A conference with the French philosopher and psychoanalyst, Cynthia Fleury, on the topic of intergenerational relations and the pandemic will be held in the Plainpalais community hall on 10 June at 6.30 p.m. This will be followed by a round table with Cornelia Hummel, Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Geneva, and Sylvain Leutwyler, member of the Groupe de liaison des associations de jeunesse (youth associations liaison group, or GLAJ-GE).
During the different waves of the pandemic, intergenerational relations were severely strained. How were the protective measures taken sometimes seen in a negative light by the very people they were intended to protect? How did the younger members of the population feel forgotten and even sacrificed?
These tensions have given rise to numerous debates, placing a question mark over society’s relationship with the passing of time and the links between the young and old. They may nevertheless also provide an opportunity to discover new forms of intergenerational solidarity. On 10 June 2021, the conference with Cynthia Fleury and the subsequent round table was intended to foster reflection on these issues.
