Communities for All Ages is a film in development that will document the power and sustainability of community building when residents of all ages, including older adults and youth, are tapped as leaders who work together to promote community change. Too often older adults and youth are seen as problems rather than resources, and solutions to chronic social problems elude discovery because they are addressed through age-specific rather than whole-community solutions. Communities for All Ageswill follow five diverse communities where older adults, teens, and young parents identify and take action on issues affecting multiple generations such as health, safety, life-long learning, and immigrant integration. Resident leadership development, the creation of multi-generational sites, collaboration across sectors, and opportunities for intergenerational interaction are among the strategies that will be captured.
