What Can You Do to #MakeTheLink between Generations in 2016?
Linking Generations Northern Ireland’s vision is that Northern Ireland will be ‘age-friendly’ and generations will work together to build communities for all ages. We believe that bringing generations together is a catalyst for positive social change. Our experience has taught us that intergenerational practice promotes better understanding and respect between young and old, creates opportunities to share skills, is inspirational and addresses shared problems. It is also great fun!
With this in mind, this year we’re asking you to #MakeTheLink between generations: helping us spread awareness of the benefits of all ages working together and support the building of age-friendly communities in NI.
How can you support our campaign?
