Adult Intergenerational Education

Final event for Project Faith with the e-EngAGEd Community

EAEA, a partner with the Fondazione Mondo Digitale, of Project e-EngAGEd will participate in the final event of Project Faith, coordinated by Age Platform Europe, to launch a new initiative financed by the European CERV Programme.

The conference will be held on December 7 in Brussels (9.30-14.00).

The event aims to share good practices concerning the inclusion of senior citizens based on an intergenerational approach with many partners of Fondazione Mondo Digitale activities, including Age Platform Europe, e-Seniors, Eavi, Anziani e non solo soc. coop. Soc., and 50+ Hellas. These are some of the major accredited organisations for adult education in Europe that use the intergenerational model. The event will provide an opportunity to network at the outset of Project e-EngAGEd.
