Global Intergenerational Week
What Is Global Intergenerational Week?
Welcome to Global Intergenerational Week, a campaign connecting everyone who is passionate about everything intergenerational. In its third year, the week looks to inspire individuals, groups, organisations, local/national government and NGO’s to fully embrace intergenerational practice, connecting people of all ages especially the younger and older generations.
The campaign will celebrate good practice, ideas, moments and opportunities local to us where different age groups come together, and intergenerational friendships can be formed! It provides an opportunity to plan for the future developing new ways of connecting and being creative in how we use our spaces and places, and the resources generations have to offer one another.
As we emerge from the pandemic now more than ever it’s vital that we develop and celebrate relationships between generations to rebuild our communities, reduce isolation and loneliness, improve health and mental wellbeing, help young people to catch up with their learning and to reduce ageism.
When Is Global Intergenerational Week?
Global Intergenerational Week takes place from Monday 25th April – Sunday 1st May 2022.
If you are:
• passionate about connecting generations
• have an inspiring intergenerational story or idea to share
• facilitate or know of an amazing intergenerational project in your area or
• have plans to build an intergenerational community then please get in touch.
