ENIL – European Network for Intergenerational Learning

The European Network in Intergenerational Learning responds to the need identified among practitioners to offer a platform and incentives for fostering new ideas and new developments in intergenerational learning across Europe, and to provide the infrastructure for on-going exchange of expertise, good practice, news, research and developments in the field.
It will facilitate discussion and shared understanding of concepts/ terminology around Intergenerational Learning Policy and Practice, while identifying new priorities and raising the profile of Intergenerational Learning across Europe by consolidating informal networks, contributing to the debate on the role of seniors in today's society, influencing policy makers, disseminating and mainstreaming intergenerational learning developments. The Network will encourage through adequate measures both the horizontal transfer of innovation among practitioners (through Peer Learning Activities and providing opportunities to meet and exchange good practice) and a two-way vertical dialogue between policy makers and the grass-root level (through dissemination of policy decisions, through research into existing practice that will feed further policy recommendations, and through the singling out of impact of good practice at various levels). In concrete terms, the Network will organise two thematic conferences and an advocacy conference, will fund Peer-Learning Activities among organisations at grass-root level throughout Europe, will publish two thematic reports and an advocacy document, will issue an Intergenerational Learning Magazine in eZine format and in print.
 The main aim of the Network is to promote Intergenerational Learning (IGL) by bringing together and supporting sustainable, effective practice in the field and by facilitating the exchange of ideas and expertise beyond individual projects, and by creating a mechanism for practitioners to influence policy and practice.
