Words Over Time: An Intergenerational Dialog Event about Climate Change**FULL**
We rarely think of diversity in chronological terms, yet the phenomenon known as ageism involves stereotypes and misunderstandings that affect young and older adults. Words Over Time: An Intergenerational Dialog seeks to address ageism through a dialog between OLLI members and UC Berkeley undergraduates.
Facilitated by Darren Zook, the dialog will bring multiple generations together to discuss the critical topic of climate change. Often described as an issue of intergenerational justice, climate change is frequently framed by the idea that present generations have duties toward those in the future. This makes it a perfect topic for intergenerational dialog about the impact of mitigation vs. adaptation for people at all levels of the socioeconomic spectrum and the balance of current and future resource needs. This event offers a platform to initiate civil, reflective, and meaningful conversation across the chronological divide and across the social and political landscape.
