Promoting awareness of intergenerational research, programming, policy and related approaches is becoming increasingly important as societies world wide struggle with a range of issues and challenges surrounding the development and maintenance of social solidarity. The best way to stimulate understandings and appreciations of intergenerational approaches is through the provision of specific case studies that are both current and diverse in terms of their nature and purpose. The material as presented in this issue reminds us that there is still much to be accomplished in terms of future research and application as it relates to policy and innovative program development, delivery and evaluation. More importantly, the matters raised throughout this issue reinforce the belief that the quality of interaction and level of engagement between the respective generations says much about the quality of all our lives.
