ComeON! - Community projects for social innovation through intergenerational volunteering experience (2013-2015)
ComeON! is an intergenerational learning project funded by the European Commission, within the Lifelong Learning Programme, Grundtvig Multilateral Projects Action. ComeON! will develop and, together with secondary school teachers, pilot and refine an innovative intergenerational training course. The course will offer young and old exciting opportunities to learn through and about interactive face-to-face (‘physical’) methods and cutting-edge virtual platforms. Participants will, furthermore, learn about and experience the ways in which the physical and the virtual can be joined to create novel ways to bring about social change at the community level, thorugh social innovation projects. Participating in ComeON! is expected to showcase the potential of both elderly and young citizens to actively contribute to dealing with important challenges of current day Europe.
