Generations Working Together invite you to join us on Wednesday 15 September 2021, 10:00am - 11:30am
This session is the 2nd on our series looking specifically at men in intergenerational activities and the forming of long-lasting intergenerational relationships. We decided to look at how sporting activities build a natural bond across generations bring all ages together in sporting events (such as watching sport together) or sporting activities. The list of activities is endless, and we want to explore and encourage the sharing of stories and people’s experiences of intergenerational happenings around sport. We will look at participation in sporting activities for both old and young people. How volunteering, coaching, or spectating in sport might contribute to promote more intergenerational connections.
Intergenerational sport is a vital instrument to foster not only active ageing but also social inclusion and community cohesion.
