European Intergenerational Learning Platform
We aim to improve the digital competencies of senior adults to facilitate the use of digital tools and applications in order to make them participate in society in a more active way. Perhaps even more importantly, now is the time to improve the dialogue between seniors and young people because we want to prove that these age groups can learn from each other for the benefit of society even by enhancing the employment and well-being of the European citizens. In this direction, The Learning Age project also seeks to increase the training offer of adult education centres, with innovative strategies that invite participation in training based on the methodology of intergenerational learning. This is expected to involve more adults in lifelong education in partner countries Spain, Romania, Poland and Cyprus and to create an international online learning community hosting successful projects and resources based on the principles of inclusion.
One of our goals is to empower both young adults and seniors. The richness of the learning process lies in the fact that it will be built between educators, senior adults and young adults, it will not be a traditional teaching-learning process, it will be peer-to-peer learning, where adults are the protagonists and learn by doing. Learning by doing is the main way to learn digital skills.
At the same time, researches shows that intergenerational learning is an excellent mechanism to promote transformative education, most significantly in the youngest. In this way we will connect the two age groups into an efficient and sustainable education plan.
Through Online training we want to give you the opportunity to increase your knowledge.

The Learning Age aims to provide the individual with the values, attitudes, skills and knowledge to use the digital tools of today and tomorrow. Being equipped with these digital values as a differentiating element in intergenerational learning, for communication and innovation on a large scale, content will be created for an audiovisual reproduction channel, based on an active and dynamic transnational network of transmission and instantaneous interaction of knowledge and experiences among adults.
Seniors and young people, made up of adults from the consortium’s partner countries, where training tutorials are hosted divided into different areas of interest, based on key competencies, such as: citizenship, family and values, labor market and professions, life experiences, health, environment, economy.These tutorials will be developed mainly by senior adults, through digital training received by young adults, where channel beneficiaries can acquire this training and resolve doubts and questions in real time resolved by senior adults.
