Lunch & Learn: Intergenerational practice is essential

Wednesday 28th August 2024, 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Online

This Lunch & Learn session is open to Scottish Government Civil Servants. 

Intergenerational work is not limited to early years children and residential adults which is a popular misconception, nor is it just a ‘nice thing to do’. Intergenerational work is essential, promoting greater understanding and respect between generations, contributing to building more cohesive communities and is recommended by the World Health Organisation as a means of effectively challenging ageism and reducing its negative impact upon physical and mental health as well as on the economy. 

This session will explore how an intergenerational approach can be used in a targeted way across a range of different fields such as education, youth work, adult social care, community development, housing, and public health; evidenced by a growing bank of research.

The session will be delivered via Teams, please book your space below and the link will be sent out to you the day before.

We look forward to seeing you.
