The Nine Principles of Intergenerational Practice
At GWT, we recognise 9 core principles of intergenerational practice. In order to shed light on these, we will be posting a monthly blog, each dedicated to a different core principle.
Blog 6: A Celebration of Women in Intergenerational Practice
Our 6th blog deviates from our usual focus on the key intergenerational principles, and instead showcases a collection of stories from women in the field of intergenerational practice. From educators to researchers, from care providers to policymakers, women continue to be at the forefront of intergenerational practice, driving its development and shaping its future. On International Women's Day 2023, we want to celebrate the invaluable efforts of women in intergenerational practice.
Blog 5: Evaluating Intergenerational Work
In our 5th blog, we explore the importance of evaluation within intergererational practices.
Blog 4: Adopting a Life-Course Perspective
In our 4th blog, we consider the importance of adopting a life-course perspective within intergenerational practice.
Blog 3: Reciprocal Intergenerational Learning
Our third key principle of focus explores the importance of reciprocal intergenerational learning and considers ways in which intergenerational projects can be embedded into school curriculum.
Blog 2: The Importance of Mutual Benefit
Our second key principle of focus is on the importance of ensuring 'mutual benefit' is achieved in the delivering of intergenerational projects and activities.
Blog 1: Asset-Based Intergenerational Practice
A core principle of intergenerational practice, is that it is asset-based. What does this mean? Ultimately, it means that we want to focus on existing strengths, within generations and within communities.
