Intergenerational Festive Day- Athens Concert Hall Garden

On October the 10th, in the premises of in Athens Concert Hall Garden, people of all ages, we formed a large group to celebrate and honour the "International Day of Older Persons" that is celebrated on October 1st.

Despite the rain, almost 300 people - families with grandparents and children, but also older people who came alone - all with a positive mood for communication and interaction, proved in practice that TOGETHER the generations Grow Better!

The garden was decorated with intergenerational-family photos of 96 participants of all ages, who shared with us their personal moments for the Intergenerational Photography Exhibition "Growing Up Together. Growing Better!”

6 Organisations and 3 Sports Federations offered visitors the opportunity to interact through recreational activities, highlighting the importance of intergenerational contact and how it can help reduce ageism and shape a society that is inclusive and equal to all!

The Intergenerational Festive Day was held by the  Hellenic Society for the Study & Research of Aging - EEMEG and ANTAMA , under the auspices of the European Gereatric Medicine Society-EuGMS. It preceded and introduced the 17th Congress of the European Geriatric Medicine Society “Growing old in better health- Building synergies across Europe''.
