The world of learning is multi-dimensional in terms of contributing to the economic prosperity and wellbeing of society. The project will look at one specific dimension of learning benefit, namely how the provision of learning to older people makes a positive contribution to active ageing and individual health and wellbeing. We will draw on the expertise available from partners in Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Spain and UK.European demographic data highlights in all countries an increase in the average age of the population as a result of the twin trends of increasing longevity and reduced birth rates. With higher number of people in retirement it is important that people remain active, remain healthy, able to remain economically active and contribute positively to society. The project brings together seven geographic spread community focussed partners who provide valued learning provision for older people, which is creative in engaging and motivating learners. All partners have a story to share and recognise the value of learning from other similar providers in other countries. Through seven short-term joint staff training events we will provide a platform for experts to share learning techniques and methodology in areas such as quality standards, learning planning / delivery, intercultural and intergenerational dialogue, mentoring, self-organised groups, working with specific target groups (e.g. men, women, migrants, Roma) and in specific topics (e.g. traditional arts & crafts, horticulture, reuse of materials, IT, language etc). Through the training events we will identify and develop good practice examples and publish these in a Good Practice Guide on How Learning Contributes to Active Ageing, which will be widely distributed to ensure learning is maximised to both internal and external stakeholders.
