More inter-generational bonding/mixing in communities

There were examples of how intergenerational work helped both older and younger people, building links, finding opportunities and sharing skills. For example, older people sometimes have time to help busy younger people, young people can provide technology advice and digital skills to older people. No bonding or mixing should be forced on people or it won’t work.

Why the contribution is important

It builds links and understanding within communities, and brings people together with different needs and different skills and things to offer.

    I totally agree. It would also tackle the loneliness of the elderly and give children that precious oral and craft transmission that keeps heritage alive.
    Furthermore, from my experience in Italy where my son was born, the old ladies wouldn't let me get away with feeding my son rubbish. They taught me to shop intelligently and cook well. Something I cherish to date.
