Today’s “grey-haired” population, the last generation that matured into adulthood without computers, the internet, social media, or search engines, will not be with us forever. Participants of the #TLTMovement, referred to as Tomorrow’s Leaders Today, determined it was not ok for the collective knowledge, wisdom, and insight of seniors to just quietly pass away with them.
Rather than settle for being mentored mostly through their ever-present mobile devices or social media, these young leaders have gotten involved in the Wisdom Keeper project. By participating in senior events and planning interview opportunities, TLT are able to spend time discovering the answer to questions like, “What do you think our younger generation needs to know?”
Through experiencing the journalistic process, young and old will collaborate in preserving, in infamy, the words and legacies of this bygone era in a book series entitled Grey is the Original Google.
“More than just because it is brilliant and novel, I’m a big fan of this project because it makes meaningful dialogue happen that would otherwise never happen. The wiser older person being validated and pleased to share their wisdom; the eager young person wanting to glean the edifying nuggets from a long life well-lived. Brava!” ~ Rose Ann Lovell, Esq., President & Founder, Veritas et Vino
