Abstract

The generation gap has been an issue that is rising in many communities. This paper investigates the challenges of ‘generation gap’ and propose a model for closing it. The synthesis of the literature review defines the types of generation gaps and the factors that increase this gap. The contemporary practices and measures used to close this intergeneration gap are identified. Two main approaches are retrieved as a reflection from the literature reviewed: mindset approach and socio-economic engagement approach. The researcher presents a case study that proposes a theoretical framework about connecting the different generations and engaging them through solving socio-economic issues of common interest. The paper recommends further studies in this line where different generations would be engaged more to share knowledge and values and mitigate risks of further gap widening, while solving their socio-economic problems.
