SENIOR ENGAGEMENT IN A GREEN ECONOMY - SEE GREEN
Start date: 01 Nov 2011,

The See Green project aims at designing flexible learning modules and contents to be delivered to senior citizens who are owners or rent a dwelling, and to managers of senior residences who wish to save energy and make their home environment more energy efficient. The main aim of the project is to alleviate the lack of knowledge of senior citizens concerning measures and changes in order to make their homes more energy efficient, being it their own homes, or being it their residences, or social clubs. The managers of senior residences will use the materials to create awareness and implicate their residents in energy saving activities, making them an integral part of the energy efficiency efforts of their environments and residences. See Green will use new methodologies and build up flexible, plain language adult education material on European standards and energy efficiency in buildings. The target group are European senior citizens, but the design of the materials and contents will cater for the different socio-economic, geographical or cultural situations of this age group. In this sense the project moves away from the current mainstream of considering senior citizens a homogeneous group. The main result will be a complete training system located on an e-Learning platform including procedures, modules, and educational materials, also integrated by a simulation software tool. All will be developed based upon the specific learning needs and capacities of senior citizens. Impact of the project will be to have environmentally conscious senior citizens, able to make decisions and knowing what to demand from their senior residences with respect to energy saving. As non-tangible results it is important to note the increasing of knowledge and awareness on energy saving, energy efficiency and renewable energies that could potentially be transferred to other groups, sectors and regions not directly involved in the project.
