Together Old and Young: a Training Manual for Intergenerational Learning Activities

Launched in 2012, the TOY project (Together Old and Young) is about bringing young children, up to 9 years old, together with older people for them to meet, get to know each other, learn and have fun. Funded by the European Commission and implemented in several European countries like The Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Poland, Ireland and Slovenia, the project counts now with a practical manual on how to organize intergenerational workshops.

The toolkit provides background information on this new learning approach, guidelines on how to structure and organize a TOY training workshop and five modules with examples of activities, hand-outs and additional research material.
