Sri Lanka has heard the voice of the experienced; the older generation. We have learnt from their wisdom. Sri Lanka recognises the energy of young people; the energy for innovation and social change. Generations have been appreciated and recognised for their unique strengths. But has Sri Lanka been able to harness the collective potential of its entire population, capturing all generations together?  
 
The United Nations Population Fund Sri Lanka, UNFPA, is facilitating a series of inter-generational policy dialogues to bring generations together; bringing wisdom together with the energy for social change, to collectively voice the opinions of three generations towards Sri Lanka’s socio-economic development.  
 
The third integenerational dialogue was on the topic of 'Shifting Demographics and Development Opportunities'.
