Abstract

Although the growth of intergenerational programs faces little opposition, the development of a positive intergenerational voice in public policy debates meets greater resistance. Advocates for intergenerational programs have been largely pro­ active, whereas advocates for intergenerational approaches in broader public policy arenas have generally expressed their voices reactively. Advocates for intergenera­ tional approaches to broader public policy seek to express a positive intergenerational message within a very difficult policy environment.
