LAT Community Explorers find creative ways to make Leicester age-friendly

LAT are working with Leicester Vaughan College to develop a Community Explorers project to promote more community-based research opportunities. Research shows that learning helps people to respond positively to change in their lives, to remain engaged in society, and to remain physically and mentally active.

Community Explorers will work together using participatory action research on the issues that matter in their communities. They will share their learning through ‘table-top’ displays, encouraging conversations with others.

Community Explorers will be supported to develop ideas for learning projects individually and in small groups, and share their ideas in creative ways e.g. by creating posters, films, and poems and through conversations with others at events or in cafes.

Community Explorers will be introduced to ways to keep themselves and each other safe, and to make sure everyone is treated fairly in the project.
