COMMON PURPOSE – INTERGENERATIONAL LEADERSHIP

So often communities can seem to co-exist but not work together. Many people feel that young people live in a different world to them, using technology in different ways and having being brought up in a different age. Similarly many young people find it difficult to relate to people who are from a different generation, though often they are the ones they will be applying to for university and careers.

Andy Coxall, the CEO of Common Purpose Student Experiences, flew back to the UK to visit Jewellery Quarter Academy as part of an Intergenerational Leadership event we were hosting for Common Purpose.

He spoke passionately, as did the guests and our children about the need for people from different age ranges to come together for everyone’s betterment. There was a real feeling of the need for #Collaboration.
