Posted in: News on May 26, 2014

LGNI (Linking Generations NI, Beth Johnson Foundation office in NI) Manager Vicki Titterington attended the TOY event on 15 May in Dublin. The TOY Project (Together Old and Young) brings together young children up to nine years with older people so that they can learn together and from each together, socialise and have fun. Vicki presented at the event talking about LGNI's work in Northern Ireland and across the region. TOY is a two year 'intergenerational learning' project funded under the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme - Grundtvig and is being implemented by nine partner organisations internationally. It also investigates initiatives that involve older people and young children in artistic, cultural and creative projects as well as outdoor and nature activities.
