Intergenerational Housing, Places and Spaces
Join GWT’s new network which will meet 3-4 times per year to share the latest information and resources from the field, facilitate peer learning, and grow the community of intergenerational housing, places and spaces.
There is increased interest in designing and building housing developments and communities with intergenerational elements being at its core whether its co housing, multigenerational housing, colocated/shared sites etc. Housing has been increasingly segregated between generations with many different types of specialist housing for older people and new housing being designed and marketed towards specific groups of people.
We spend a lot of our time in and around the immediate environments of where we live. These spaces have great opportunities for enabling purposeful and mutually beneficial intergenerational relationships to form which enhance our understanding and respect for people of different generations.
Everyone has unique experiences, skills and knowledge, the sharing of these can help us build more cohesive communities. Our plan is to invite a range of experts to offer an overview of ideas and share real examples of intergenerational housing and shared sites and how the future of looking at housing can change to fit everyone’s needs.
