The University Adelaide G-TRAC Centre was presented with their finalist certificate at the launch of the 2014 Intergenerational Festival at COTA SA today.
G-TRAC is a finalist in the Every Generation Intergenerational Award which recognises exemplary initiatives that bring older and younger people together in partnership.
We’re also pleased to announce that G-TRAC advisor and Community Fitness Leader Judy McKenzie was also a finalist for the Every Generation Physical Activity Award, recognising the outstanding contribution by an individual (all ages) to encourage older people to remain physically active.
The awards are given each year as part of the Every Generation Festival in October.
Each year the Festival continues the tradition of celebrating the valuable contribution made by older South Australians to the community. During the month of October events and activities are held for South Australians of all ages to come together to celebrate the achievements of older people.
The Every Generation Festival is both an intergenerational festival and a public acknowledgment of the contribution that seniors make to our society. It is a time for older people to share their achievements with people of all ages. A highlight of the Festival is the Every Generation Festival Awards. These Awards recognize the importance of a philosophy of positive ageing, as well as acknowledging the many contributions of older individuals and organisations to our society.
G-TRAC in partnership with Campbelltown Council will host an intergenerational festival event Engaging with Ageing –A Health and Wellbeing Expo on 14 October. Find out more by clicking on the ‘G-TRAC Events’ tab on the G-TRAC News & Events page.
G-TRAC would like to thank our partners, consumers and students who have embraced the intergenerational learning opportunities.
