LGNI were delighted to welcome intergenerational enthusiasts from across a range of sectors to our conference in October, which took place at the Lagan Valley Island in Lisburn. Our keynote speaker was Jonathan Collie, co-founder of The Age of No Retirement, a UK-based social movement who is working to challenge age stereotypes. Delegates participated in three different workshops covering LGNI’s digital inclusion work, European-based best practice models and our work with connecting care homes. There was also plenty of discussion around LGNI’s future plans and progressing intergenerational network building across NI. We launched two important publications at the event: one is a collection of case studies of intergenerational practice from across Germany, Poland and the UK. The other is a collection of methods for working in intergenerational practice. These publications were made possible through our participation in an Erasmus + project with Association ‘ę’ from Poland and Kreisau Initiative from Germany. You can download these two documents below, both are available in a full version and an ‘easy print’ version which had no pictures and so uses less ink. We hope you will find them useful!
