Our world is changing. Within a few years, the introduction of new technologies may affect not only labour market, but personal relationships as well. Climate and political changes drive tens of thousands of people out of their homes into the more stable democracies of the Western world. Are these phenomena related to single parenting? How can disadvantaged families survive these changes? And finally, what measures and tools may support these families?

Closing the international Erasmus+ project "Stronger Parents, Stronger Families", the round table presents L&D programmes for parents and professionals produced within the project.
