March 9th, 2013 — Women Transforming Cities celebrated International Women’s Day 2013 at the Intergenerational Café:
Envisioning a City for Women of All Ages and Abilities in partnership with Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House (2131 Renfrew St., Vancouver).
Cities include women and girls from a wide variety of backgrounds; they range from the very old to the very young; they have different abilities and interests; yet they all need to share city spaces, support each other, and celebrate unique identities. This community café event invited youth, seniors and everyone in between to explore intergenerational themes, including Valuing the Care-Giving Role, and Universal Design–Access for all Ages and Abilities. The event closed with a visioning workshop: Designing an Intergenerational Community.
