Before you is a collection of the best children’s works on the topic of intergenerational solidarity, tolerance, and understanding between generations. Through various forms and expressions, with mature storytelling talent, precise brushstrokes, and a keen eye behind the lens, these young authors beautifully portray warm relationships between different generations, both young and old. They present us with emotional stories that teach and, at the same time, warn us, showing that despite positive examples and the beauty of togetherness, children are well aware of the problems that arise when intergenerational solidarity is lacking.
Each of these awarded works hints at the strength, love, and inventiveness of future generations, who will find ways to improve this world. This is an opportunity to thank students from all over Serbia for their diverse, creative, and educational works that come to us every year. Also, we owe our gratitude to their teachers who have contributed to enhancing our understanding of the concept of intergenerational solidarity and making it a part of our daily lives.
We hope that, like us, you will enjoy these artistic creations because, as a reminder, without intergenerational dialogue and solidarity, there can be no societal progress. Together, we can build bridges connecting us to future generations. We can create a society where everyone, regardless of age, feels they truly belong. This is not just a dream but a vision we can achieve if we all work together.
