Generations United

Washington, DC

Generations United’s mission is to improve the lives of children, youth, and older adults through intergenerational collaboration, public policies and programs for the enduring benefit of all. For three decades, Generations United has been the catalyst for policies and practices stimulating cooperation and collaboration among generations, evoking the vibrancy, energy and sheer productivity that result when people of all ages come together. Generations United believes that we can only be successful in the face of our complex future if generational diversity is regarded as a national asset and fully leveraged.

How We Work Together

After meeting at the 2015 IFA Adult Immunization Advocacy Champion Summit in Brussels, Vaccine Ambassadors and Generation United teamed up to promote the awareness campaign, Valuing Vaccinations Across Generations. The campaign uses an intergenerational lens to promote vaccinations across the lifespan. Generations United launched this initiative in 2016 in partnership with The Gerontological Society of America and The American Academy of Pediatrics.

As part of this work, Generations United is currently working with the Tokyo Metropolitan Institute on Gerontology in Japan and the University of Granada in Spain to lead the effort in their countries. Generations United is also a member of the World Coalition on Adult Vaccination Promotion.
