Each partner will host one training action. By incorporating Roman and medieval themes within the training actions, partners are demonstrating the transferability between countries of their adult education training for intergenerational learning in a range of historic environments. Activities are recorded through photography, participant reports and video (‘developing cultural assets’ film) and collated on linked project websites (in all partner languages) to create an online resource for training materials to support the new ECVET module ‘Intergenerational Cultural Learning’. A minimum of 15 senior learners with fewer opportunities will travel and participate in these activities with a further 30 engaged in activities in their own country.

There will also be staff training events for those directly involved in training provision for senior learners, which will be hosted in Romania (Nov 2022).

What are the aims of the project?

  • The new Green Village module within “Sustainable Development – Focus on Culture and Nature”, entitled ‘Intergenerational Cultural Learning’.
  • A 25 minute film ‘Developing Cultural Assets’
  • 42-page digital free to download Green Village magazine featuring 2 case studies for each of 6 partners (12 case studies, each 2 pages – minimum 1 case study on digital shift for seniors) with introduction page, contents page, EU policy page, future of the EU page.
  • Social media and project web pages linked into each partners home page. Used for both dissemination and as a resources tool to support delivery of the new curriculum.

The resources include personal reports from learners on the impact and benefits of undertaking intergenerational training linked to the historic environment. Learning outcomes and training ideas are broadly applicable and transferable across the partnership countries and throughout Europe.
