Intergenerational Daybe4c97bd-1347-47a8-ecd0-84732b64acbf.jpg

June 1 was Intergenerational Day! This day celebrates the mutual benefits of building relationships across generations, reducing isolation, and building connections. One of our Healthy Aging Alberta partners and an exceptionally active Healthy Aging CORE Alberta group lead is the LINKages Society of Alberta. LINKages hosts intergenerational information sessions, groups, and events throughout the year. They facilitate innovative intergenerational programs and services that encourage involvement, transfer of knowledge, and capitalize on the strengths of youth and older adults to foster strong communities. Have you seen their interactive, intergenerational quilt yet?

Join the International Linkages Community of Practice CORE group to connect more to this work! The Community of Practice aims to bring together committed individuals who desire to work collaboratively to learn, share, build capacity, and develop intergenerational linkages programs or initiatives in their communities.
