Intergenerational Month

Intergenerational Symposium: Developing Your Toolbox

 

This is what IG looks like!

Intergenerational Awareness Month is in September. This is a global movement celebrating the many benefits of relationships between adults aged 60+ and young people. Thorough the month, we seek 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 Foundation, which initiated the recognition of a month devoted to celebrating intergenerational connections. (Read more about this partnership here.)

Here are THREE WAYS for you to get involved:

  • Attend the Intergenerational (IG) Symposium.
  • Plan and host an event in your community. Click here for more information.
  • Enter the Kraemer Intergenerational Story Contest. Click here for more information.

Read more about how to be involved to plan ahead and celebrate all year!
