National Intergenerational Week
Welcome to National Intergenerational Week, an online campaign connecting those passionate about intergenerational activity and inspiration across the UK. In its second year, the campaign is all about celebrating those ideas, moments and opportunities local to us where different age groups come together and intergenerational friendships are made! It also gives us an chance to consider planning for the future and developing new themes such as developing spaces and places. Opportunities for generations to connect will become even more important as we emerge from the current pandemic, so we want to inspire people to build relationships between different generations!
This year the St Monica Trust are handing over the leadership of the week to Generations Working Together who are collaborating with Linking Generations Northern Ireland, Bridging the Generations, Wales and The Cares Family, England.
National Intergenerational Week takes place from 8-14 March 2021. Are you passionate about connecting generations? Do you have an inspiring intergenerational story or idea? Do you run or know of an amazing intergenerational project in your area? Do you have plans to build an intergenerational community?
Join us on #IntergenerationalWeek as we say no to the age gap.
During the National Intergenerational Week, we are hosting our first online Intergenerational Conference. Join us for am and pm webinars throughout the week. Our prices start at £10 per day for our members and the full week is available at a discounted rate. Please visit the event page to book a place.
Our aim is to get as many people as possible involved and talking about how they plan to connect younger and older generations to build strong connections and friendships.
