Plan Be: Active Senior Volunteers
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

'Plan Be: Active Senior Volunteers' is a two year project between organizations (public and private) from Portugal, Italy, Slovenia and Finland, however the project is framed within a long-term perspective and planned with a view to achieve a multiplying effect and sustainable impact. The EU is made of its citizens and for its citizens! Encouraging and facilitating citizens' wider involvement in the European Union and what it stands for is of great importance. The main aim of this project is to create high quality learning opportunities, through the exchange of methodological approaches between the involved partners, creating a strategic and innovative program to engage senior citizens in lifelong learning. The focus will be on the promotion of an active ageing program through active citizenship and involvement in volunteer work and community activities, addressing issues such as European citizenship, nature and environment, interculturality, social inclusion, among others. As 2015 is the European Year for Development, this project will be a great opportunity to inspire more Europeans to get engaged and involved in development, stimulating a commitment to eradicate poverty, and demonstrating how senior volunteers can have a large contribute. The project 'Plan Be' aims at fostering active ageing and lifelong learning, with the support of three clear components: 1) fostering involvement in volunteer work and community activities as a key strategy for active ageing and active citizenship; 2) developing and consolidating adult educators competences (knowledge, skills and attitude) in order to structure active ageing program initiatives for senior citizens; 3) contributing to a positive impact on local development in a sustainable way, considering senior citizens as key agents. The project has a good geographical balance, involving 4 countries from Southern, Northern and Central Europe, which will contribute to ensure a real European outreach of the project.
