Intergenerational forum to include high school seniors and senior citizens
The first Intergenerational Forum (IGF) on Daniel Island will be held at the Bishop England High School Performing Arts Center on February 23, 2016 at 7 p.m. The IGF is being organized by a committee of citizens of Daniel Island and is presented by The Daniel Island News.
Five senior high school students from schools across the lowcountry and five senior citizens will participate in the forum, which is open to the public and free. At the end of the IGF, The Daniel Island News will award a $1000 grant to the student who gives the most well-presented issue and solution.
The mission of the IGF is to bring together in a public forum representatives of a younger generation and senior citizens and glean their perspectives on crucial matters facing humanity, our nation, and the world today. Additional goals of the IGF are to stimulate, recognize, and respect the opinions of each generation and to learn from each generational perspective.
