Intergenerational Month is in September. Formerly called Intergenerational Awareness Month, or IGAM, at Bridges Together, Intergenerational Month is a global movement celebrating the many benefits of relationships between adults aged 60+ and young people. It also seeks to raise awareness about the societal changes that have created the need for mindfully uniting the generations. Bridges Together is carrying the work of the organization Intergeneration Month, which initiated the recognition of a month devoted to celebrating intergenerational connections.
