Changes in family structures, immigration and the economic crisis, among others, make generational bonding difficult. For this reason, there is an urgent need to create shared spaces in which different generations can relate to each other. Based on this premise, formal education offers an ideal context to work on the intergenerational vision. Indeed, intergenerational experiences in the context of formal education help to create a lifelong learning ideology, fostering two-way learning and nurturing the active participation of both elders and learners.
