Seniors Perceive A Common Europe

EU-Programme: Erasmus+, KA2, Adult education
Coordination: CHAM (Germany)

Duration: December 2022 – November 2024



Objectives: Enriching Adult and Senior Education

Currently, the “Seniors Perceive A Common Europe” project pursues two main objectives. The first is to equip adult education providers and trainers with resources to develop a common European identity, key competences, and sustainable thinking, focusing on the cultural heritage of senior citizens by utilising their real-life experiences and cultural heritage knowledge. The second objective is to empower seniors through non-formal learning opportunities and exchanges, enabling them to acquire more key competences and new perspectives on European identity.

Implementation: Diverse Activities for Learning

The project involves collaboration from five partner organisations from Germany, Bulgaria, Spain, Sweden, and Italy. Activities include:

    • Development of a teacher handbook and learning frameworks based on LifeComp.
    • A blended learning Empowerment Course for seniors covering five thematic areas: nutrition, health, home management, self-determined consumer behaviour, and environmental behaviour.
    • Creation of a Digital Exhibition and Digital Trails in Europe, based on the five thematic areas.
    • Five European Exchanges for seniors to experience other cultures.
    • Multiplier Events.

Results: Improvements and Educational Resources

Various outcomes from the SPACE project are expected, for both adult education and seniors, as well as the general public, including:

    • A handbook on Life Skills with best practices, implementation ideas, and five learning frameworks, available in six languages.
    • Curricula and concepts for Senior Empowerment Courses for the five thematic areas, in six languages.
    • A digital platform on Life Skills with 100 exhibits, in six languages.
    • Five thematic Digital Trails on Life Skills in Europe, in six languages.
    • Five regional Digital Trails on Life Skills in Germany, Bulgaria, Spain, Sweden, and Italy.
