Bold Moves: How Generations Can Work Together for Change
Wednesday, September 29, 2021, 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Virtual - Webinar
Celebrating September Intergenerational Month
4th Annual Intergenerational Symposium
Our communities, our institutions, and the world around us are struggling to respond to major challenges. Solutions to environmental, social, educational, health, economic and other issues often seem to elude our well-intended efforts. What if younger and older people joined forces in an intergenerational pact to make change? Younger people are looking ahead to the next decades of life with a sense of urgency about these issues. Older people are looking back at what has and hasn't worked mindful of their legacy. And all generations are rich with untapped ideas and energies. Join us and a panel of community members and educational partners to explore how we might bring generations together to spark innovation and make progress - beginning with a conversation about climate change and social justice.
