    Bridging Generations in Russia

    Generationsbrücke Deutschland has created a multi-dimensional approach to fostering intergenerational understanding and dialogue. Following a systematized methodology, the social enterprise builds regular, long-term relationships between kindergarten and school-age kids on the one hand and residents of nursing homes on the other. These meetings bring joy and love into the lives of the elderly, while the children, too, experience how much fun it can be to spend quality time with older people.

    In cooperation with Generationsbrücke Deutschland and the International Alumni Center, the BMW Foundation organizes an Impact Session that will focus on the introduction of the intergenerational initiative in Russia. Selected members of the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Network will discuss the concept of Generationsbrücke and its challenges for Russia, and present a new day-care concept.
