Intergeneration Month Around the World.
Intergeneration Months are springing up, from Africa to New Zealand.
Organizations around the world are promoting intergeneration programs because of the benefits to individuals of all ages as well as the larger community. We would love to hear from more of you all. Let us know what you are planning and we will share it with the world.
Here are two programs we are excited to hear about and share with you:
Halley Movement is a non governmental organization that works to promote child and family welfare in Mauritius and in the Indian Ocean regions. Halley Movement organized a series of workshops across the island and one workshop in Rodrigues Island for community leaders.

The Community Development Coordinator of the Kapiti Coast District Council, Paraparaumu New Zealand, is planning an Intergeneration week celebration culminating in Dance through the Ages to connect the generations. Demonstrating what the music was like, what the clothes looked like, the type of dances performed, how dance was one way of people getting together throughout the ages and having fun.
We look forward to hearing more intergeneration news from around the world.
