The partners of the Tocatì programme develop activities in the educational field, and collaborate in the context of European projects dedicated to education, such as the ongoing Erasmus + Opportunity project. (link to the project website). 

 

In Italy and in Europe, the Tocatì programme promotes a constant dialogue between traditional playful communities, with which it develops formal and informal education activities, aimed at sharing good practices for the Safeguard of Traditional Games and Sports. As part of the programme AGA proposes in Italy, in collaboration with the Italian gaming communities and the MIUR – Italian Ministry of Education, educational workshops aimed at primary and secondary schools of first and second degree, with the aim of supporting the transmission of traditional games, promote outdoor play and encourage intercultural dialogue. Educational activities take place both in schools and at the headquarters of the Ancient Games Association. AGA also offers, with the contribution of professionals from various disciplinary fields, training courses for teachers, university students, associations and administrations, on the themes of Traditional Games and Sports, the safeguarding of intangible heritage and the organization of cultural festivals.
