2017 Global Intergenerational Conference,
cohosted by St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care
in Milwaukee, WI.
The one-of-a-kind 19th biennial conference provides an opportunity for professionals from all over the world to learn, network and share about innovative research, policies, and practices in the intergenerational field.
From the opening act to the encore, “Generations Remixed” will be jam-packed with noteworthy speakers, thought-provoking sessions, opportunities to build connections, and hands-on experiences to see intergenerational strategies in action. The four-day event will put a new spin on how people of all ages can remix their abilities, wisdom and energy into a song that everyone will want to put on repeat. You’ll walk away with a fresh perspective, ready to join the chorus and energize your organizations, communities, and the world to be age-amped!

St. Ann Center for Intergenerational Care provides community-based health and educational services for children, adults, the elderly and those with disabilities, while serving as a resource and support for caregivers. The center brings all ages and abilities together—from 6 weeks old to 100+. Youngsters learn to respect and socialize with the elderly and people with special needs. Those same adults delight to the sight and sounds of children, improving their physical and mental health and sense of self-worth by making dozens of young, loving friends. The unique model of day services has been serving Milwaukee for over 30 years and opened its second location, the Bucyrus Campus, in 2015. Learn more at http://stanncenter.org/
