June 1: Intergenerational Day
Intergenerational Day was created in 2010 to raise awareness of the many benefits of respectful relations between generations. For instance, when people of different ages spend time together, it results in increased empathy and a reduction in ageism and isolation.
Recreation can be the perfect vehicle for bringing different generations together and providing opportunities for fun, learning, and connection. Celebrate this day by engaging in your favourite recreational activities with family, friends, and community members of different generations.
