INSPIRED by stories of the power generated by special activities bringing individuals of different age groups together this group wants to discover what makes intergenerational practice tick.
They’ll be looking at how it contributes to the building of age-friendly communities where everyone has the chance to respect each other, have a voice and gets to play their full part.
As well as how schemes that really work can create opportunities in many places and for all sorts of reasons for different generations to learn from, support, meet and enjoy each other.
There’ll be input from invited speakers covering schemes already running and those dreaming of launching ideas.
Links will be established with research partners at all levels.
And U3A members will be finding out what is happening, where.
What works and what doesn’t.
Discovering what could be launched to assist health and wellbeing during the pandemic.
And exploring what can be nurtured and encouraged for whenever we return to what is the new normal.
The group is looking for input from across the UK and beyond.
And provides a rare opportunity for those U3A members with research and analytic skills to be involved in something realistic and meaningful.
Meetings will be held monthly but it is expected that some streams of enquiry will lead to project groups meeting separately and reporting back on their endeavours.
Digital technology and Communities Online will ensure Generation Linkers breaks fresh ground within the U3A.
We look forward to you joining us in this venture with a difference.
