Global Intergenerational Week

Thank you for your support!

We are so grateful for the time and support you each gave to Global Intergenerational Week 2024. We are really pleased with how the campaign went and are excited to see where we go next. We hope you are feeling inspired to keep working and supporting the intergenerational movement. 

We will have lots to share from the campaign in the coming weeks/months, so keep your eyes peeled!

 

GIW24: What Went On

Together, let's celebrate the power of connection. Relationships between older and younger people are not just ‘nice’ but essential. Join us for #GIW24!

Join us for Global Intergenerational Week from 24th to 30th April, 2024! This annual worldwide campaign encourages everyone to embrace intergenerational practice and relationships. Whether you're an individual, part of a group, organisation, government, or NGO, Global Intergenerational Week has something for everyone.

During this week, we celebrate the power of intergenerational relationships. The campaign seeks to highlight the amazing outcomes that are achieved, when people of all ages come together to form vital and lasting connections. We want to hear about your experiences and ideas, whether it's a local project or a global initiative, that bring different age groups together in meaningful ways.

Let's share and discuss creative and effective ways to connect generations, and help make the world a better place for everyone, regardless of age. 

Online Event Schedule

Executive Team: The campaign is organised and coordinated by GWT with support from an executive team comprising of Linking Generations (Northern Ireland), Bridging the Generations (Wales), and the Beth Johnson Foundation & Apples and Honey Nightingale (England).
