Great news! The Intergenerational Speaker Series has received a generous donation which will allow us to offer a second year of the 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.
Save the Date: Other events in the series will be held at the same time and place on November 22, January 23, and March 13. Mark your calendar and look forward to details in upcoming newsletters.

Event Two: November 22, 2023
Disconnecting to Connect
Finding Balance in a Digital World
The intention of this event is to discuss how connection has evolved over time and how we have adapted to it. In what ways do we connect? Have our methods changed over time? How do we feel about these changes? These are just some of the questions that we will reflect on during the event. IGSS' second event will explore intergenerational perspectives on our wired world and discuss how recent advancements in digital technology have affected our personal relationships and the human connection.
