Intergenerational Speaker Series
CALL has partnered with the Nursing Program at Mt. Royal University to offer a series of four lectures in the next year that will bring together older adults and university students to meet and engage in discussion. It will be a unique opportunity for learning and for forming new connections across generations.
Over the coming year we will offer 4 events, each beginning with a guest speaker, a panel, a film … something to set the stage and provide a focus for a lively and informative discussion. Following a light lunch snack, we will meet in small intergenerational groups for a facilitated conversation. All the events will take place in the Lincoln Park Room of Mt. Royal University from 11 am to 1pm.
September 28, 2022; November 2, 2022; January 18, 2023 and March 8, 2023

Framing our Memories
The intention of the event is to honour intergenerational connections by learning to capture and preserve memories. We hope to create a space that allows participants to creatively express themselves, learn from other generations, discover ways to share stories, and recognize the beauty of leaving a meaningful legacy.
Light refreshments will be provided.

The series is being funded by the New Horizons program and is a joint project between the Calgary Association of Lifelong Learners (CALL) and Mount Royal University, Faculty of Nursing.
