10 Nov 2020
Keynote Theatre
The award winning TV experiment Old People's Home for 4 year olds' brought together a group of children and older adults who then 'did nursery together.' The relationships and activities benefitted both groups, producing improvements in physical activity and wellbeing. Prof Wyrko will discuss the key messages from the experiment, what works and what doesn't, and how we can all make intergenerationality normal again within our society.
