Intergenerational Practice: Contributing to a Conceptual Framework
Vieira, Sacha; Sousa, Liliana
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v35 n4 p396-412 2016
The ageing of the European population is creating a new demographic mix, increasing the relevance of intergenerational practice (IGP). To date, however, this field lacks an appropriate conceptual framework. This study aims to contribute to such a framework through an integrative review of peer-reviewed papers reporting on IGPs. Fifteen papers were obtained, published over the last 20 years. The main findings suggest that the wealth of IGPs lies in their versatility/diversity. In order to build an appropriate conceptual framework for IGP, it is recommended that IGP be understood as a tool to restructure society: from generations' segregation to generations' cooperation.
