The number of older people across Europe is increasing. New active ageing initiatives are emerging to empower older people as active citizens. The SLIC II project adressed this issue by developing a peer facilitator training and training older people as peer facilitators.
The main project product is the SLIC Toolkit for the peer facilitator training, including a handbook for trainers, materials for trainees, additional exercises for the SLIC Workshop as well as the original SLIC Handbook that are available in English, German, Italian and Hungarian.
The SLIC Toolkit as USB stick as well as the printed handbook for trainers can be ordered from partners.
