“We often hear about stepping outside ourselves, but rarely about stepping outside our generation.”

― Criss Jami, Killosophy

A dear professor, Pierre Mohen, made us remember that many times is the case that knowledge gets lost much more than is created. A practice to tackle this phenomena has always been to listen to the elders. It is still a tradition in some places. This is an invitation to gather different generations around topics of socioeconomic knowledge.

Our Mission

To contribute to the expansion of knowledge of intergenerational matters, by formalizing its breakdown into specific sections such as lifestyle, skills, income, employment, consumption and saving behaviors, and technology and recycling adoption. To contribute to the development of the specification of the second half of the life cycle, and its breakdown among the end of medium age, the third and fourth ages. To provide an open exchange of ideas and proposals to enhance a formal dialogue between generations. The IRSC supports U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and directly promotes the goals 3, 4, 5, 8, 10, 11, 12, 16, and 17.

Our Vision

To become a reference in the studies and research of intergenerational matters. To develop a special focus on different generations and the life cycle stages, especially the second half of this one. To keep open dialogues between generations on different topics of knowledge.

Our Statement

We stand by the declaration behind the metaphor of Isaac Newton in 1675, "We see further when standing on the shoulders of giants". We recognize the work of those who came before us and that of other authors and organizations currently involved in intergenerational matters. Big and small, all of them count, and we look forward to exchanging ideas with them.
