Global Intergenerational Week

Welcome to Global Intergenerational Week, a campaign connecting everyone who is passionate about everything intergenerational. In its fourth year, the week looks to inspire individuals, groups, organisations, local/national government, and NGOs 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.

Programme themes for 2023 are being planned and will be announced later in the Autumn.
