MORE than 2,000 people from 90 municipalities across the province took part in 12 Intergenerational Provincial Days, which aimed to establish links between the oldest members of society and the youngest.
Organised by the Almeria provincial council’s Social Welfare Department, the administration said the first edition of the initiative had been a great success, bringing together the experience, wisdom and values of the elderly with the fresh perspectives and innocence of children.
“This project aimed at being a fundamental starting point for continuing to develop the work of raising awareness about the care and strengthening of intergenerational relations, which are brought about through close, daily contact in every corner of our province between the different generations which make up our society”, commented Social Welfare Deputy Angel Escobar.
The deputy said participants “had discovered they have more in common than they thought, and together we are moving towards a better society.”
The intergenerational days were held in Tabernas, Vera, Turre, Oria, Cantoria, Olula del Rio, Velez Rubio, La Mojonera, Abrucena, Berja, Huercal Overa and Alhama de Almeria in collaboration with the host municipalities’ local councils and schools, and the involvement of professionals from the province’s Community Social Services Centres.
