Fruits of Society - a project of intergenerational cooperation
Action

The project aims to unite old and young people, using institutions that are familiar with the needs and abilities of both groups. It aims to tackle the stereotypes young and old people tend to have against each other.

Overview

The House called Fruits of Society is the first example of setting up an intergenerational centre in Slovenia, which brings together different activities and different groups in the Pomurje region. The project's aim is to ensure additional help for the elderly by young people and, at the same time, help youth acquire new knowledge. Activities mainly revolve around socializing, collective creation, and promotion of a healthy lifestyle and voluntary work. The idea is to create a forum where ideas can be exchanged on how to deepen and extend intergenerational voluntary cooperation to other activities and how to carry out these activities in different contexts.

Impact

The project will unite younger and older people, and tackle the stereotypes young and old people tend to have against each other.
