Intergenerational Solutions to Elder Abuse: Kids And Seniors Work It Out
Apr 28, 10 – 11 pm PDT
Canadian Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, i2i Intergenerational Society, and
BC Association of Community Response Networks
The presentation will be in English. PowerPoint slides will be available in English and French.
For decades, governments, non-profits, community health and education advocates have worked from two different camps to alleviate bullying of youth and abuse of older adults.
This webinar will assist you in understanding reasons for, and ways to bring, those two generational camps together, simply and cost effectively, for maximum impact on their shared area of concern.
The team of presenters will present a brief background of this work, 2 exemplar projects, and introduce four free resources to guide your interest. There will be a Q & A in which we heartily invite you to take part.
Who should attend
Educators, community networkers, senior-serving organizations, elder abuse prevention stakeholders, youth workers, and anyone interested in building community.
Sherry Baker, Executive Director BCCRNs
Sharon MacKenzie, Executive Director i2i Intergenerational Society, Director CNPEA – British Columbia
