AGE: WISE - Across Generations at Eye Level: Ways to Integrate Seniors by Education
Learning processes between the generations offer opportunities for the social inclusion of elderly people and the closing of the gap between young and old, which is becoming ever wider in today's society. Seniors who have completed their working lives run a certain risk of what psychologists call "bore-out": the feeling of no longer being needed that can suddenly take over and negatively influence one's own actions and thoughts. These two aspects inspired the consortium to develop a project aimed at seniors in order to empower them to engage in intergenerational learning settings (IGL) – as a teacher. Five European partners (Austria, Germany, Poland, Italy and Portugal) aims at equipping senior citizens with two-level skills: 1) recognize their personal competencies and knowledge and thus restore their self-confidence outside of professional life, and 2) acquire training skills that enable them to slip into the role of a teacher and pass on their valuable knowledge to young people.
