Overview

Older adults now represent the nation's fastest-growing segment of our population. Through Intergenerational Dialogue, youth and older populations come together to share their skills and challenges, while developing new methods to increase understanding and influence.


What you want to know?

This conference connects all generations from a variety of different backgrounds to brainstorm ideas and goals while networking with others to come up with solutions in order to make services for older adults more efficient. Attendees will learn about current topics surrounding older adults, network with professionals and local leaders in elder care. We as a society need to band together as a community to support, respect and protect our elders. Intergenerational Dialogue enhances community engagement.


What YOU will get out of being involved?

Participants develop a resource network to support each other with their ideas, goals and action plans. Attendees leave with a better understanding of older adults and the topics surrounding our elders. From the connections and ideas that the attendees develop during Intergenerational Dialogue, the participants can then move forward with their calls to action feeling empowered, more knowledgeable and have an understanding that older people are capable people.


Who will Benefit most?

Everyone because this issue effects us all. Current models of elder care are not sustainable and not effective.
Target Population: All generations in the United States.

Attendees will be made up of college students, professionals, any/all community members, young people.
