There is a critical need for new ways to bring older and younger people together.

Connections between generations were strained before Covid-19. Since then, physical distancing has created more division, disconnection, ageism and loneliness. By separating us, the pandemic has created a deeper appreciation for our essential interdependence and for the creativity that will be needed to bring young and old together again when it’s safe. To boost and support that creativity, and to respond to our urgent need for connection, our nation’s most talented innovators and entrepreneurs are marshaling their best ideas to create and scale intergenerational solutions.

The first 15 Gen2Gen Innovation Fellows are bringing generations together to fight social isolation, even the playing field for youth, create stronger cities and more affordable housing, strengthen the multigenerational workforce, and so much more.
