Co-generate! Livestream Unlocks Potential of Intergenerational Collaboration

By Sarah McKinney Gibson | Jul 14, 2021

On June 23, more than 4,000 people tuned in to watch the Co-generate! Livestream, a 2-hour virtual event for younger and older changemakers eager to bust out of our respective age silos and work together for a better future.

You can watch it below, and click “SHOW MORE” under the video to find time stamps and shortcuts to inspiring cameos, incredible musical performances and thought-provoking fireside conversations between:

  • Sian-Pierre Regis (Director, Duty Free) & Chip Conley (Modern Elder Academy)
  • Krista Tippett (On Being Studios) & Rev. Jen Bailey (Faith Matters Network)
  • Andrew Ahn (Director, Driveways) & Lucas Jaye (Actor, Driveways)
  • Angela Glover Blackwell (PolicyLink) & Eric Liu (Citizen University)

The opening collaboration between two jazz greats from different generations — Justin Kauflin and John Clayton — is sure to get your head bopping. And stunning performances by Mumu Fresh and MILCK will stay with you.

It’s time to tell a new story about the power of younger and older changemakers to bridge divides and solve critical problems, like racial inequality, climate change, and social isolation, just to name a few. We hope these segments are a step in the right direction!
