On behalf of Concordia University’s School of Community and Public Affairs, you are formally invited to our upcoming public panel discussion “Generation All: Reimagining Montreal”.
This virtual event will be held on March 29th, 2022 at 6pm EST. With a panel of research experts and community organizers, our panel will explore the question – how could Montreal become an age-friendly, intergenerational city.
The panel will discuss how ageism manifests itself in our communities. We will explore what can be done to address age-related harm, marginalization, and generational divides through policy changes and interpersonal strategies.
You will hear from Dr. Meghan Joy, a research expert on the relationships between government policy and age-friendly city projects. Furthermore, Tracie Swim will represent the West-End Intergenerational Network, a community organization working on the ground to bridge generational divides and advocate for community connection. Lastly, Anne Caines will join us and discuss how the organization Respecting Elders: Communities Against Abuse works to combat elder isolation and promote a culture of respect within communities.
Join the conversation and find out how we can all be part of the change
