[1-F] [GLOBAL FIVE-PARTY ROUNDTABLE] The Reality and Solutions of Inter-Generational Conflict|[글로벌5개국 청년 비정상회담] 국제시장에는 미생이 없다-세대갈등의 현주소와 해결 방안

[JoongAng Ilbo]

Inter-generational conflict is deepening in our society. Reasons for the conflict are becoming more and more specific and diverse; from inter-Korean reunification, to the issue of supporting aged parents to even urban redevelopment projects.
The older generation, represented by Deok-Soo in the recent Korean film “Ode to My Father” are the people who made the Miracle on the Han River possible. They often had to settle for very little, and they couldn’t afford to be exhausted if it meant a better life for their families. As portrayed in the TV drama “Misaeng”(meaning ‘incomplete life’ in Korean), life for the younger generation in their 20s and 30s has been a series of tough competitions. The Sampo(three forsaken) Generation, 880,000 Won Generation are other names for this age bracket. The Sandwich Generation who are the sons and daughters of the “Ode to My Father” Generation and the parents of the “Misaeng” Generation are constantly insecure. They don’t know when they will lose their jobs and they don’t have enough retirement savings.
Differences in life experiences have led to differences in social awareness and perception. A recent inter-generational study showed that social values are becoming more and more specific and diverse according to age.
In this session, five young panelists representing Korea, the United States, China, Japan and Germany will share their perspectives on inter-generational conflict in their respective countries and suggest solutions for sustainable social development.

우리 사회 세대 간 갈등의 골이 날로 깊어지고 있다. 남북통일, 부모부양부터 아파트 재건축에 이르기까지 그 이유도 다양하다.
영화 ‘국제시장’으로 대표되는 기성세대는 한국전쟁의 폐허를 딛고 한강의 기적을 이뤄낸 현대사의 주인공이다. 허리 펼 날 없었지만 당연히 여겼다. 드라마 ‘미생’이 그린 20~30대의 인생은 경쟁의 연속이다. 삼포세대, 88만원 세대는 미생세대의 또다른 이름이다. ‘국제시장’의 아들이자 ‘미생’의 아버지인 ‘낀세대’는 언제 일터에서 퇴출될지 모르면서도 쌓아놓은 재산은 많지 않은 불안 세대다.
서로 다른 삶의 궤적은 인식의 차이를 낳았다. 최근 발표된 다양한 세대간 연구는 연령대에 따라 사회적 가치관이 달라지고 있음을 보여준다. 이번 세션에서는 한국·미국·중국·일본·독일 등 5개국을 대표하는 젊은이들이 각국의 세대갈등 사례를 소개하고 해결 방안을 제시한다.
