PROJECT IDEA AND SPECIFIC FOCUS
Elderly people are a large part of the EU’s population, which is becoming progressively older.
This project offers new opportunities for intergenerational solidarity between Croatian and Bulgarian schools.
The idea is to explore how a better society can be built by bringing older people into classrooms. The project focuses on bringing pupils and elderly people together and on their collaboration for a better life. Both are encouraged to share knowledge and skills, while learning about each other.
The schools will create opportunities for a dialogue between generations. The goal is to fight stereotypes and encourage different generations to greater sharing of experience and knowledge, which will lead to greater social awareness about active ageing.
