Training Course

17-23 November 2012 | Česká Skalice , Czech Republic

A creative and interactive training course that offers all you need for developing ACTION projects on INTERGENERational work as a tool for positive social change.
2012 has been designated as the ‘European year on Active Ageing & Intergenerational Solidarity’. This means working towards connecting and bringing together younger and older people in their communities and their daily lives. With this in mind participants of the Training of Trainers of European Youth in Action program have linked up to develop a creative and interactive 6-day residential training approach to explore and develop new community-based intergenerational actions and activities. After a successful kick-off in Ireland and even better 2nd TC in Switzerland we offer 3rd edition now supported by the Czech National Agency. This course is aimed at youth workers, youth leaders, trainers, project managers etc. especially those who work with younger people with fewer opportunities, and will allow them to generate some new ideas (and develop concrete action plans) of how and what they can do in community contexts at local and European levels to develop current intergenerational practice. Objectives: •To explore ageism and identify and challenge the prejudices and stereotypes about age •To raise awareness and understanding about the nature of ‘intergenerational work’ and how it fits together with the concept of lifelong learning •To generate some new ideas of how and what youth workers in community contexts can do at local and European levels to develop current intergenerational practice •To provide foundations to enable participants to: network, share intergenerational work “best practice” and promote and implement intergenerational work in their own communities within the context of the Youth in Action program Intergenerational work aims to: · Bring older and younger people together in purposeful, mutually beneficial activities · Breaks down barriers that exist between younger and older people in disadvantaged communities · Build respectful and cohesive communities which reduce social exclusion. · Through intergenerational youth work, younger people can experience lifelong learning concept and will become more active and inclusive citizens in their community.
