The Role of Intergenerationalism in Community Development
As the two largest generations of our time—Gen Y and the Baby Boomers—age, communities are evolving to provide a different built environment and a new level of amenities for residents to engage with one another. While developers are beginning to see the need for new amenities, there are larger questions related to this trend. What does the growing desire of these generations to live near each other say about the best ways to develop or redevelop communities? How do communities engage multiple generations organically? This program will feature new research undertaken by the Terwilliger Center in partnership with the Community Development and Senior Housing Councils designed to shed new light on this growing trend.
