Conference Program

Bridging the Generations is packed with informative and engaging sessions. You’ll have the opportunity to listen to inspirational speakers as well participate in discussions with colleagues from around the world.

The 2019 conference features information on cutting-edge intergenerational research, policies, and practices. This one-of-a-kind conference brings together leaders, educators, and intergenerational advocates and enthusiasts from around the world. Inspired by our host city Portland (with its twelve bridges spanning the Willamette River), “Bridging the Generations” will make the connection among intergenerational efforts worldwide!
