TOY Position Paper

Together Old & Young: How should we live together? A spotlight on the benefits of contact between the youngest and the oldest citizens in our communities.

In October 2016, ICDI published a position paper in collaboration with Ana del Barrio on the contribution IGL can make to promote inclusiveness and intercultural dialogue in our communities.

By creating opportunities for intergenerational learning between children and older adults from diverse social-cultural backgrounds, new understandings and knowledge of the ‘other’ can be created, which can benefit both young and old, contributing to social inclusion and their participation as active citizens in their communities.
