Sport Across Generations

Wednesday 15th September 2021, 10:00am - 11:30am

This session is the 2nd on our series looking specifically at men in intergenerational activities and the forming of long lasting intergenerational relationships. We decided to look at how sporting activities can build a natural bond across generations bring all ages together in sporting events (such as watching sport together) or sporting activities. We recognise that not all men enjoy or take part in sports and we do plan to host other sessions to explore other ways that men can participate in intergenerational work.

The list of activities is endless and we want to explore and encourage the sharing of stories and people’s experiences of intergenerational happenings around sport. We will look at participation in sporting activities for both old and young people, male and female. How volunteering, coaching or spectating in sport might contribute to promote more intergenerational connections.

Intergenerational sport is a vital instrument to foster not only active ageing but also social inclusion and community cohesion.
