A Good Life for All – How Does That Work?

A book presentation on December 12 will feature experts who will address Austria’s social structure and changing values.

Many people are experiencing more freedom in their jobs, personal life and in their relationships. In lieu of the many options we have today, is this freedom ‘too much’ and becoming unmanageable? This freedom can lead to uncertainty and a feeling of being lost and disoriented, always searching for continuity and a yearning to return to traditional values.
How and to what extent do Austrians want to determine their own lives? What do they expect from ‘a good life’? What do Austrians want and expect from the government, jobs, family life, and free time?

The book "Sozialstruktur und Wertewandel in Österreich. Trends 1986-2016" looks at these questions and more, including questions such as: what do Austrians personally consider most important? What do Austrians expect from the government, family life, and leisure & recreation? A panel discussion will follow the book presentation.

Admission is free; kindly register in advance to attend by sending an e-mail to: aes_sekretariat@jku.at. The book presentation will be at the VHS Linz, Wissensturm, Room 15.04 at 6.30 PM.
