GoAct - Generations in Action

GoAct - Generations in Action


GoAct was a Grundvig project for raising awareness on the importance of the dialogue between generations, calling on insights from experts, policy suggestions, adult education, media coverage, and initiating an information campaign about ageing.

The project GoAct aimed to:

  • raise awareness of policy-makers, persons dealing with educational planning, academics and umbrella organisations as well as the general public on the importance of lifelong learning in ageing processes,
  • change the common image of elderly people and ageing in Europe through educational means and awareness raising (inclusion of journalists),
  • transfer knowledge, methods and good practice for intergenerational learning from project supported under the four main Actions of the LLP, and
  • develop ideas for innovative approaches to intergenerational learning.

The project particulary focused on:

  1. intergenerational learning in adult education
  2. intergenerational learning in working life
  3. intergenerational learning in early years education
  4. intergenerational learning in intercultural contexts
