The great debate – earn respect

As part of the Victorian Seniors Festival there will be a debate with a battle of the generations as the baby boomers and builders engage with representatives from generation X and Y, in the Great Respect Debate at Melbourne Town Hall on Friday.

Bracing the topic, ‘Seniors must earn respect’, three older Victorians aged 54 to 75 years old will argue affirmatively for the statement while three younger Victorians aged 17 to 29 will debate the case against.

The debate will create a community conversation about respect for older people while highlighting the truth about what people actually think.

The event comes off the back of recent Benetas research into the topic of respect for older Australians, released earlier this year.
