Summary of the project:
Age-related stereotypes and discrimination are more typical characteristics of our society than ever. Representatives of different generations are victim and guilty at the same time, because they discriminate people of other generations while they are also often discriminated. Lack of intergenerational communication causes misunderstanding, and leads to stereotypes and discrimination. Our society needs well-prepared youth workers who are able to understand and engage each generation, promoting this way intergenerational communication and. With these in mind, the objective of the project is to introduce tools and methods to engage multiple generations in activities that bridge the ever increasing generation gap.
The aims of the activity are the as follows:
1) develop mutual acceptance and understanding between people from different generations;
2) fight against stereotypes and promote tolerance and solidarity through different experiences and viewpoints for a better life and society;
3) make youth workers able to involve also the elderly in their activities in order to bring closer young and old generations.
