The European Map of Intergenerational Learning (EMIL) is a collaborative network of members working together to support intergenerational learning taking place across Europe. Established in 2009, the network uses the existing expertise of partner organisations already working in the field to create a learning network for others involved in bottom-up as well as top-down intergenerational programmes and initiatives and across Europe.
Big Foot is set out to tackle key issues at European level: marginalization of the rural mountain areas and their ageing population - by focusing on the valorization and maintenance of the elderly population, traditional knowledge and specific local culture. The Big Foot approach is implemented in three rural municipalities: Berkovitsa, Bulgaria; Trikala, Greece and Gubbio, Italy.
ELDER supports seniors coming from restructuring sectors on transmitting their knowledge to other generations. The main aims are related to: active participation of seniors in continuing learning processes; share experiences and good practices developed at European Level in the field of knowledge transfer among generations; identify and analyse the necessary competences to favour the intergenerational knowledge transfer.
At the same time the project offered to SENIORS a specific training program and tools favouring the exchange and transfer of knowledge. In this way the project promotes active ageing, volunteer work and the social participation, reinforcing their social contribution to other (younger) people learn from their experience.
