Volinact – Activities
The project work will start with a short research about volunteering in general and volunteering in learning in later life in the partner countries. Regular mail and skype contacts will ensure a good project progress. During the actual exchange the partners will work in adult education centres discussing different aspects of volunteering and learning in later life. Older learners and volunteers will participate. Discussion groups, involving volunteer organisations and adult education centres will also be created on local, regional and national level. 50plus volunteers will work three weeks in the exchange adult institutions and give lectures four days a week. Topics will be culture, health, language, art, medicine ect in Satriano di Lucania in October 2012 and in Graz in April 2013.
VOLINACT wants to develop:
- A set of good practice concerning volunteering for learning in later life
- Guidlines for volunteers in adult education centres
- a local discussion group
- Working groups on regional, national and European level
