PS088: Growing Together? How might creative RE projects help a school and its local intergenerational community ‘Grow, Together’?

This project set out to explore what potential might be unlocked within any intergenerational community to support work in RE and SMSC development.

The aim has been to extend previous research for The Farmington Institute: ‘The Doughnut and the Hole’ (1997), to intergenerational community contexts, and explore how intergenerational connections might enrich the quality and depth of learning for all those involved.

Whilst exploring key issues related to the terms ‘Spiritual Development’, ‘Intergenerational Communities’ and ‘Creative RE’, practical resources have been created for schools and communities to explore and develop in their own context.
