Share your best practice this Global Intergenerational Week

This week is Global Intergenerational Week – running from 24th to 30th April, 2024.

In North Ayrshire, we are showing our support by lighting up Saltcoats Town Hall and Kilwinning Abbey pink.

This annual worldwide campaign encourages everyone to embrace intergenerational practice and relationships. Whether you’re an individual, part of a group, service, business or organisation, Global Intergenerational Week has something for everyone.

Check out how you can get involved in the video below.

Look out for the hashtags #IntergenerationalWeekNA #GIW24 for examples in North Ayrshire of the benefits of forming intergenerational bonds and what is happening near you.

Find out more about Global Intergenerational Week on the Generations Working Together website.

Stay tuned to the Council’s social media channels for more content later this week…

Be part of the campaign to encourage intergenerational bonds and opportunities in our communities

If you contribute to one of our Council-based social media channels (such as North Ayrshire Ranger Service, Housing, Locality Partnership pages and more… it would be brilliant if you could share your intergenerational best-practise too…

What we are looking for would be examples of:

  • People of all ages coming together to form lasting connections/making a positive impact in their locality
  • Places where people of all ages can interact and celebrate each other while sharing experiences and learning something new
  • Volunteer groups or volunteers you are working with where people of all ages can build confidence and reduce social isolation
  • Support in communities where people can come together to socialise, pass on life lessons and family stories.

So why not share your examples and use the hashtags #IntergenerationalWeekNA and #GIW24 to get involved.
