What We Owe Each Other and the New Social Contract – In Conversation with Minouche Shafik (Director of the London School of Economics)

Minouche Shafik, author of ‘What We Owe Each Other: A New Social Contract’ discusses how we can re-think supporting each other to thrive.

Shafik is Director of the London School of Economics and one of the leading policy experts of our time, Baroness Minouche Shafik explores an urgent rethinking of how we can better support each other to thrive.

Whether we realize it or not, we all participate in the social contract every day through mutual obligations among our family, community, place of work, and fellow citizens. Caring for others, paying taxes, and benefiting from public services define the social contract that supports and binds us together as a society.




Join us on Thursday, July 22, at 2pm BST to discover how we can return to an equitable, generous and inclusive society in a world where the social contract has been broken by changing gender roles, technology, new models of work, ageing, and the perils of climate change.

Why do we need a new social contract?

What is the debt that older generations owe younger ones – and what should we do about it?

How are technological and demographic changes forcing us to rethink education?

When can implementing practical solutions to current challenges help us build a better society?

⚡️ We are giving away 5 FREE copies of Minouche’s new book, What We Owe Each Other: A New Social Contract. Enter the raffle at registration. Winners announced during the webinar.

Places are limited.

Thursday July 22nd, 2pm BST | 9am EDT | 9pm HKT
