To provide practical models for conducting productive debates on difficult topics between young and old; to facilitate evidence-based, transformative discussions on equality and identity (e.g. race, faith, climate, migration); to interrogate 'culture wars' and ‘gesture politics' on and off campus; to create intergenerational communities of inquiry with parliamentarians, universities and young citizens.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
