The Project

Your Treasure – Our Treasure

Motto: We must restore the honor of experience, wisdom, and intergenerational dialogue. (Frank Schirrmacher) Background: The „population aging process”, characterized by an increase in the age of the population and a decrease in the number of children born is a common phenomenon throughout Europe. The most affected area on the continent is Southern Europe, which is hit hard by the migration of young people. Our partners have been chosen from this area. In recent years, more and more young Hungarians have left small towns in the countryside for larger cities or migrated abroad looking for job opportunities, which have exacerbated problems such as the accelerated aging of the population. So far Hungary has responded very slowly to this process. Thus, reflecting on and addressing the issue has become an urgent duty of our cultural institutions and our partner institutions.

Main aims:

– to prepare the participating institutions for working with and engaging the elderly in a structured and conscious way
– to acquire effective methods of discovering, raising awareness of, and transmitting the values of older generations
– to develop and expand the competencies of our cultural professionals to enable them to:
– engage with the elderly,
– to motivate the elderly to take advantage of non-formal learning opportunities
– to apply the methods of experiential learning
