GWT’s vision and ambitions as an organisation are:

  • To enable Scotland to become an intergenerational nation.

  • To influence national and local policy in favour of intergenerational practice.

  • To promote, support and increase innovation in intergenerational practice in Scotland.

  • To increase participation in intergenerational practice.

  • To ensure sound governance.
