The challenge addressed by the project is a fast ageing. Due to rising life expectancy, the proportion of older people in Europe is increasingly rapidly. Active ageing and solidarity between generations are key to the creation of a Europe for all ages. The transmission of older people’s knowledge and skills to the younger generations should be encouraged and their skills should be utilised after retirement, for example through voluntary work. Multigenerational learning as an answer to above challenges, represents one of the most important means of overcoming gaps between generations.
Project duration: October 2020 – September 2022
Project aims to increase the quantity and above all enhance the quality of multigenerational cooperation between the oldest and the youngest generation – seniors and preschool children.
Project main target group are senior mentors. Project aims to provide seniors with opportunities for active ageing by training them for multigenerational programs mentoring.
