Last week ICDI’s Margaret Kernan and Giulia Cortellesi had the honour of receiving the Life Long Learning Award for the TOY-project (Together Old and Young). The purpose of TOY is to promote intergenerational learning and create new possibilities for senior citizens and young children to learn together and benefit from each others’ company. The TOY programme is funded by the European Commission and Dioraphte.
The Lifelong Learning Platform (LLLPlatform) launched the Lifelong Learning Awards to celebrate creative and inclusive practices during its Lifelong Learning Week 2016. The aim of the Lifelong Learning Award is to give visibility to innovative practices taking place all over Europe in order to attract public attention on lifelong learning as well as to inspire new practices and policies.
