Just travelling back from Birmingham where we have been at the start up meeting for the 28 projects across the UK who have been successful this year in gaining Leonardo Transfer of Innovation funding. Our project is to develop the European Certificate of Intergenerational Learning (ECIL) and this really builds on our learning from the current European Year on Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity. It is strange to reflect that when launched our intergenerational work back in 1997 we had two small local projects and now we have programmes that stretch across the Globe. We have always been ambitious to make better use of the resources that young and old people possess. To see the world in terms of people’s assets and this vision has enabled us to support the development of some fantastic ground breaking work over these past years – and now we are moving to that next step of developing an accredited European programme that will skill up more and more people to have the skills and understanding to create a generationally connected world that makes a positive difference for everybody. If you want to find out more please browse our website and join us in seeing our ageing society as something to celebrate.Alan Hatton-YeoChief Executive
