Webinar on “Resilience beyond COVID-19: Intergenerational Engagement to Mitigate the Pandemic of Social Isolation in Asia”
It has been two years since the COVID-19 brought disturbance to our daily routines and caused substantial damages to human lives and well-being across the world. Widespread physical distancing measures have put people at elevated risks of social isolation regardless of generation. Social isolation threatens individuals’ health-related quality of life via multiple short- and long-term pathways. Empowering intergenerational engagement and exchange is a promising direction to connect people of different ages and generations so that health deterioration induced by social isolation can be mitigated and prevented.
A webinar titled “Resilience beyond COVID-19: Intergenerational Engagement to Mitigate the Pandemic of Social Isolation in Asia” organised by The Jockey Club Generation Connect Project of The Jockey Club School of Public Health and Primary Care. Speakers was held on 15 June 2022 to share research and insights on the benefits of engaging intergenerational members to build resilient families and communities in the face of increasing social isolation. This webinar provides evidence-based implications for practitioners to adopt an intergenerational approach to promote family cohesion, social connectedness, and population health in the long run.
Funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Project has been promoting intergenerational solidarity in family and community as to enhance the sustainability of intergenerational harmony.
