“I wholeheartedly welcome the Camden Intergenerational Week 2015 mini-festival. Intergenerational work should be valued and encouraged. The Week will certainly help to celebrate and raise the public profile of the intergenerational work happening in Camden and elsewhere and also generate valuable new opportunities for dialogue and understanding between the generations.”
- Baroness Sally Greengross, Co-chair of the Intergenerational Futures All Party Parliamentary Group and CEO of the International Longevity Centre-UK
"I am writing to you as Chair of the International Consortium of Intergenerational Practice, Chair of Generations Working Together Scotland and Lead for Generations Working Together Cymru. The last twenty years have seen an increasing global recognition of the need to promote and develop positive intergenerational relationships grounded on respect, trust and mutual understanding. The rapid demographic change our Society is experiencing and the need to see our young and old citizens as assets to their whole community is an essential component to the future well-being of our world.
In the twenty years I have been involved in intergenerational work Camden has always been one of the exemplars that I have been able to hold up to others. The history of intergenerational work in Camden is an example for other Authorities to aspire and I am sorry I can’t join you. However I wish you good luck and look forward to continuing to be inspired by your work and as we move towards developing an All Age-Friendly Europe by 2020 to have Camden as an example of what is possible and what can be achieved when people of all ages come together. My best wishes to you all."
- Dr Alan Hatton-Yeo MBE. Communities for All Ages UK
"Having a week dedicated to Intergenerational activities is a fantastic way of highlighting the valuable and exciting work happening in this area and bringing it to a wider audience. I hope that in the future we can replicate such events in other boroughs and celebrate the wealth of benefits that come from bringing the generations together."
- Samantha Schneider, Intergenerational Project Worker, Age UK Kensington & Chelsea
“Making it possible for different generations to meet and get to know each other builds a stronger community and friendlier neighbourhoods. The range of events on offer for Camden Intergenerational Week means there something for everyone. We hope the week goes brilliantly.” - Magic Me – www.magicme.co.uk
