This Intergenerational Community Toolkit gives background and assistance in planning, implementing and sustaining engaging intergenerational activities in community, health care, and school.
The BC Ministry of Healthy Living and Sport selected the Meadows School Intergenerational Immersion Project™ to be showcased in its Case Studies of Community Actions in Active Aging report in 2008. Subsequently, Sharon MacKenzie, founding educator of the Meadows School Project™ and long time advocate of intergenerational community-connected learning, was asked to author a toolkit for educators and service providers for use in promoting age-friendly communities through a wide variety of intergenerational connections. The final collaborative toolkit (BC Ministry of Health, BC Care Providers Assoc.) was launched May 2009.
On the afternoon of June 18th, 2009, Meadows School Project (with an up-date since presentation at the last Symposium, June 2008) will once again be acknowledged at the Ministry of Healthy Living and Sport, Active Aging Symposium at the Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre along with other exciting intergenerational initiatives in BC.
