Run an intergenerational event at your school between 1 March and 29 April 2012 to celebrate European Day of Solidarity between Generations on 29 April 2012.
Then upload photos from your event to the generations@school Panoramio group and share your experiences. Images can be uploaded until 30 June 2012. Among all your entries we will pick the best generations@school projects.
- All participating schools/ classes will receive a Diploma signed by the European Commission
- One prize per EU Member State will be awarded - 27 winners in total.
- These schools will win a voucher of 300€ to buy material needed in order to realize a follow-up project with another school that is not yet involved in the intergenerational dialogue.
The European Commission has declared 2012 the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations.
The year is intended to raise awareness of the contribution that older people make to society. It seeks to encourage policymakers and relevant stakeholders at all levels to take action with the aim of creating better opportunities for active ageing and strengthening solidarity between generations.
Within this context the generations@school competition was launched.
We are looking for intergenerational projects that are creative and that have a clear impact on the people involved. A successful event will be an event with lots of conversations, learning and laughter. Maybe you'll even find new and innovative ideas for intergenerational solidarity.
The best projects are often the ones easy to implement and inspiring for others!
Submissions can be made either by a class or by a school.
Schools in any EU Member State, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein may hold events.
If you are interested in organising a generations@school project, we would like to know about it! Just send us an e-mail with the name of your school and the class(es) that will participate as well as a date: firstname.lastname@example.org
