Last month, our member from Spain, Cristina Moreno Lozano, has attended the UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing, Lisbon (Portugal).
Following the conversations about intergenerational relationships and constructing spaces for youth to be engaged in dialogues around the issue of ageing, Cristina has initiated a process for developing a report that is envisioned to contribute to collaborative approaches for sustainable ageing and intergenerational relationships.
This document is the product of collective reflections by YouAct members and partners and aims to present a brief outline of the entanglements between ageing, sexuality and civil society from a youth perspective. It brings together some definitions of what ageing means to us, as well as a compilation of experiences and suggestions on how to promote intergenerational relationships. The reader can join us in envisioning a civil society that constructs robust, sustainable, inclusive and intergenerational advocacy.
The report has been produced voluntarily and without specific financial resources and can be found here.
We would also like to express our gratitude to UNECE and all those who we personally met at the Ministerial Conference, for your fierce stance in facilitating intergenerational exchange and promoting a life-approach to ageing. This will undoubtedly bring about social change for the present and the future.
