COFACE Families Europe and its German member Arbeitsgemeinschaft der deutschen Familien organisationen (AGF) jointly held a conference on ‘The impact of digitalisation on 21st century families’ in Berlin on 7-8 November with the hashtag #digitalfamiliesEU
Our aim was to lead the way in launching a European debate on the social impact of digitalisation to reflect the rapid digital changes impacting families. We gathered experts to examine how new ways of working and consuming are impacting family relations and how people can strategically prepare for the future. We also examined both national and EU policies and discussed how they could apply to 21st century trends.
Please refer to our policy briefs as a record of the key points at the event.
