Northland Diversity in Aging Series: Intergenerational Community Building
Bringing generations together is one of the best ways to build community. A growing body of research demonstrates that intergenerational programs promote health, well-being, and meaningful relationships that enhance participants' lives.

Our community demographics are transitioning. In the United States, by 2030, 72 million people will be 65 and older, with 80 million being children and youth. By 2040, 40% of our population will be older adults and youth. It is essential to come together to invest in the collaboration of many ages, bringing together experience, wisdom, and fresh perspectives for the benefit of all.

Our next Northland Diversity in Aging Series event focusing on the importance of intergenerational community building will be held through Zoom Webinar on September 15, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. We are excited to welcome Donna Butts, Executive Director of Generations United, to speak about the value of bringing generations together. This event will also feature Zane Bail, COO of the Northland Foundation, Kathy Hermes, Youth Services Program Coordinator for Lutheran Social Services, and other local experts who will present on intergenerational programs in the Northland.

The Northland Diversity in Aging Series is a collaboration of The College of Saint Scholastica's Office of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion and the Gerontology Program, Duluth Aging Support, Northland Foundation, and the Arrowhead Area Agency on Aging. The purpose is to foster conversations and promote learning about the aging and caregiving experience across generations and cultures.
