CSocD61 side event organized by the Mission of Portugal on Intergenerational Dialogue and participation
Through an intergenerational dialogue, the event will seek to build mutually empowering relationships between generations, as one of the most important factors in achieving the SDGs, in particular SDG 8 and 10 (main SDGs to be discussed during this year's CSocD). The aim is to ensure that all people – including young and older persons – recognize themselves as owners, drivers, and beneficiaries of the SDGs. Intergenerational dialogues are a great way for different generations to share their views and experiences. Where young generations can learn from the progress that the generations before them made, older generations can learn from the new battles that younger people are facing and jointly think of ways to challenge them. As such, intergenerational dialogues are learning processes between generations.
