Welcome to “GOLD – Good Practices for OLD People”, a project funded by the Erasmus+ programme aiming at promoting exchange of best practices for the social inclusion of old people as well as their mental and physical health maintenance and skills development.
The main priorities of GOLD are to promote social inclusion of old aged people who face health-related conditions and/or segregation of any type leading to absent or marginal civic participation as well as disparities in access to the digital world and to develop the competencies of educators, adult trainers, other personnel working with old aged people (psychologists, ergo therapists, social workers, doctors) and carers who support adult learners especially old people particularly in motivating them to take part in social life and events as well as learning and engaging in new experiences by developing new skills (including digital skills).
The project is carried out transnationally by partners from different European countries: CHALLEDU (Greece), E- Seniors (France), Frodizo (Greece), Reading for others (Greece), University of Muenster (Germany) and Association GENERATIONS (Bulgaria).
GOLD aims to promote exchange of best practices for the social inclusion of old people as well as their mental and physical health maintenance and skills development.
The collection of a palette of innovative tools, the dissemination of their results and efficiency, as well as the training of adult educators and related professionals and carers are the main results expected from GOLD.
In order to promote GOLD activities, each partner will produce the following materials for their country:
1 Mapping of the status and needs of old people
2 Collection of good practices on social inclusion and health maintenance of old aged people
3 Best GOLD practices that have been applied tested and verified within the partner organizations for the elderly, addressed also to educators-trainers-related professionals.
4 Short Videos from partner organizations’ experiences with projects concerning people of age 65+
Relevant information about the project are regularly published on the GOLD website. Check out what is going on!
