Project Description

In the complex contemporary European society, social cohesion needs to be built considering a new integrated and complex dimension of social tissue, where diversity (among cultures, age, gender) is considered an opportunity.

Intergenerational learning (IL) bring to the fore the question of “differences” that enrich: in fact, IL can be a twofold purpose process, that improve dialogue among generations through civic participation in common social and institutional spaces, while at the same time enacts processes of informal learning towards the achievement, both by adults and children, of key competences for lifelong learning. The processes of IL are hence, a mean and an end to foster social cohesion.

This project aims to work with parents, grandparents, volunteers and other adults interested to interact with children through new spaces of edutainment, to train them to the importance of use of creative languages (art, storytelling, social media) to build rich and caring environments for children to grow up.

This learning process will in time provide adults with key competences 1 , 4, 5, 7 and 8 . Adults will be engaged in at least six local specific informal educational experiences to better interact with children, through creative languages; experiences will cover a range of activities, from "use of art to communicate and express", "storytelling in Europe", "games and social media for all", aiming at discussing the complex role of adults as informal educators and hence promoters of learning beyond the school.

The project will look for engagement of two types of adult-learners (at risk, like immigrant parents, and volunteers) in order to strengthen social support networks. In order to promote the better quality of adults' learning activities, the project will launch a transversal, European training of adults' trainers as reflective support to local activities through eLearning methodology to discuss the topic of intergenerational learning at European level.
