According to studies and reports, in Europe, most people during their retirement follow sedentary life styles, which lead to an increase in diseases, psychological problems and a decrease in vitality, social contacts and learning.
We intent to promote volunteer work for the protection of the environment and the maintenance of our cultural heritage We want to communicate and share ideas with volunteers working in sister associations in other European countries .
The participation in this project will be the beginning of an international activity. The volunteers and the associations will learn from each other and will share good practice in encouraging active ageing, by creating opportunities for older people to exchange ideas and voluntarily participate in their local communities.
Also we are interested in creating a network among people from the two countries, in order to exchange ideas and share their know-how and technology from the beginning of the project.
During the two-year project we intend to create opportunities for lifelong learning and active community involvement with older people, through voluntary action in three domains: environment projects, cultural awareness and use of new technologies (ITT).We are planning to organize learning events creating new forms of co-existence and co-action for all the participants in the society.
