Active Healthy Intergenerational Connections is a three-year project to demonstrate programming that successfully promotes active, healthy aging in smaller NWT communities. The Project is designed to encourage intergenerational connections and increase active living opportunities for older adults. It also responds to the Government of the Northwest Territories’ (GNWT) strategies and plans that promote active, healthy living.
There are many projects in the territory that target specific age categories. What makes this
opportunity unique is the goal to bring people together in communities across age groups. The aim
is to create regular, repeated activities and programs in your community instead of one-time
events. We hope that bringing together different generations for activities will promote the
transmission of knowledge and inspire people to lead more active lifestyles.
