Common Inter-Generational Fora

Six common intergenerational fora were held in Trincomalee, Moneragala, and Vavuniya from August- September 2019. Youth and elders who participated in the intergenerational workshops gathered with other community leaders from the three districts to share learnings and collective experiences. They also visited memorial sites and of significant locations in Sri Lanka’s history of ethnic violence and had a discussion on the importance of memories, and role of memorials / monuments to achieve reconciliation and how and why these memorial sites should  incorporate women’s perspectives.
