Intergenerational Connections and Hope
The seminar will explore the extent to which intergenerational programmes changes lives. It will scope the challenges we face as a society in addressing isolation and loneliness, the impact on mental health across generations and the potential of intergenerational activities to make a difference. It also asks us to consider if building hope for the future through IG activities is something we can all share.
