Inter-generational projects

Occasionally communities experience tensions between different groups which often arise from a lack of understanding of each other and a failure to appreciate each other’s perspectives. Intergenerational projects provide opportunities for people of different generations to work together with a common goal from which they can gain a better appreciation of each other’s needs and aspirations. Such projects can also help to break down barriers which might exist between different groups in the community.
