Symposium on Seniors and Intergenerational Programs – April 26, 2017

 

Seniors Symposium Invite April 26 2017When generations meet, good things happen. It is a simple concept and the core theme to an upcoming symposium that will be taking place on April 26, 2017 in Toronto.

What is the value in creating quality of life experiences for seniors?

Why is it important that children and youth have opportunities to spend time with older people in their communities?

It’s unfortunate that we even have to ask these questions. However, many seniors, especially those living in poverty, spend much of their time in isolation with few opportunities to enjoy companionship and contribute to community. At the same time, despite enormous and clear value, many youth miss out on exchanging their gifts of energy and enthusiasm for the wisdom and life experience of their elders.

I hope you will be able to join us on April 26th for the launch of a new sector report on this topic, to hear from those involved in a variety of simple yet effective initiatives, and to share your own experience in the field.

Please register for this unique opportunity through the invitation attached or through the following link.
