Representatives of the North Shore community Steering Committee and the SFU researcher will take you through the journey of how the InterGenNS [Intergenerational North Shore] Project came about and how it has evolved in a very short time.

Practical information and the outcomes of extensive local research on intergenerational programs and environments through interviews, surveys and forums as well as national and international research will be shared. This can inform first steps towards intergenerational programming and environment development or enhancing existing intergenerational initiatives.
