Ward Greene and Steve Higgs are part of the leadership at SAGE (Senior Advocates for Generational Equity). SAGE inspires older adults to give forward so future generations thrive. Each year, SAGE engages over 1,000 people to elevate this Greek Proverb at the heart of its work: “A society grows great when its elders plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.” Their programs include speakers, fellowships, workshops, teams, and a young leaders advisory board. All programs are intergenerational because people of all generations need each other, and the future needs all the advocates it can get.
