We had announced previously that the next meeting of the GGP Council would be held in Italy, in concert with the European Population Conference 2020 (which has now been cancelled). Due to the contingency measures to contain COVID-19, it was decided that the meeting will still take place on the same date but will be Online. It will be held, from 13:00-15:00 (Amsterdam time) on Wednesday, June 24, 2020.
The GGP Council meeting will be the occasion to discuss further with national teams their progress towards fielding the new GGS. The GGP Council meeting is also open to other national teams who have not yet considered the possibility of participating in the GGS2020.
Given the format of this meeting, we need to restrict participation to one person per national team. We therefore ask national teams to designate this representative and to inform the GGP Central Hub about the name of this person. Please also indicate if she/ he would like to make a short presentation during the meeting (presentations will be limited to 5 minutes) – please email before 1 June 2020.
Provisional agenda:
13:00: Welcome, adoption of minutes, adoption of agenda
13:10: Short presentation from the Central Hub about recent developments
13:30-14:45: National teams presentations (5 minutes each)
14h45: Q&A, conclusion and next meeting

We ask all national teams provide a brief update on the activities and progress in their country by 25 May. This is vital to help us track progress and monitor developments. You can fill out the report here:

Why the future of our population matters? | Workshop & Training for analysts, journalists & public policy experts

What does the data revolution tell us about population trends and what does it not tell us? Is childbearing increasingly becoming a problem of social justice? Does a higher proportion of older people and pensioners increase the likelihood of intergenerational conflicts? What role do differences in the coexistence of migrant families play in their economic integration?

On Monday, 19 November 2018, the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research / Population Europe in collaboration with the British Embassy in Berlin, the UK Science & Innovation Network, the Generations & Gender Programme and the London School of Economics and Political Science will offer a workshop for analysts, journalists and other experts who work at the interface between science, politics and the public to answer these questions.

Speakers include:

  • Anne Berrington, Joint Head of Social Statistics & Demography and Professor of Demography & Social Statistics, University of Southampton
  • Anne H, Gauthier, Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI), Director of the Generations & Gender Programme (GGP), Professor of Comparative Family
