NSCR’s Intergenerational North Shore (InterGenNS) has been honoured with a Special Recognition 2022 CERi (Community-Engaged Research Initiative) Award. Simon Fraser University’s CERi Awards provide recognition to SFU faculty members, graduate students, and community partners for outstanding community-engaged research that supports positive change.
InterGenNS brings together people of all ages and helps local organisations develop, implement, and expand intergenerational initiatives. The program is a community-engaged research project developed in partnership between Simon Fraser University and North Shore Community Resources Society. The main goal of the project was to better understand the current state of intergenerational initiatives on the North Shore. The InterGenNS Project has since generated community connectivity bringing together generations, ideas, and diverse organizations.
The community-engaged research being recognized by this award demonstrates alignment with CERi’s principles of participation, cooperation, social transformation, and knowledge translation. There should be evidence of beneficial impact or outcomes of the research in the community.
