IEPCP Event: Building communities for all ages: Good intergenerational practice

Intergenerational practice aims ‘to bring people together in purposeful, mutually beneficial activities which promote greater understanding and respect between generations and contributes to building more cohesive communities.’ These practices have a track record for being agents of social change; building more inclusive and cohesive communities, helping to overcome fears and prejudices, fostering friendships and providing opportunities to share knowledge and in doing so, generate self-esteem and confidence

This interactive workshop is designed to further your understanding of evidence-based intergenerational practice through practical application of key principles, from formulation to implementation and evaluation, as identified in our new resource to be published in early September. The workshop and resource will provide you with the tools and resources to apply what you learn

Who should attend:

Local government, community health, aged care providers, neighbourhood houses, libraries, early childhood and education providers, community organisations, community groups and anyone interested in tackling ageism and building cohesive, connected and resilient communities
