LARA stands for Learning a Response to Ageing. It is a Grundtvig multilateral project funded by the European Commission´s Lifelong Learning programme. The project ran from December 2008 to November 2010. Its aim was to develop training for adult educators on the theme of ageing and learning. Interim milestones were: the conduct of research; the development and delivery of courses for adults of all ages and of a training programme; the publication of a training manual.  The training manual, and the presentations from the closing symposium in Hamburg are all available from the LARA website:
