One of the biggest issues for the 21st century is the changing demographic structure of most nations. By 2050, in many countries, including the United States, there will be more adults over the age of 65 than children under the age of 15. Andrea Weaver ’94, who earned her Master’s Degree in Intergenerational Studies from Wheelock College, is helping society to prepare for this change through her organization Bridges Together Inc. Her not-for-profit is dedicated to educating people engaged in intergenerational work and developing innovative and effective intergenerational programs that they can use.
