Grundtvig Partnership Project; implementation period: 2009 – 2011


The main goal of the "HEuRIT(AGE)” project is preserving individual memories, events and people's stories for posterity, as well as strengthening the European identity. Archiving of the collected materials is based on new technologies. Those activities are run in close cooperation with senior citizens.

The project assumption is the growth of seniors' activity and self-education, growth of their personal and social development, promotion of an inter-generation dialogue and the idea of continuous learning.

Furthermore, through the exchange of experience between project partners, methods of teaching elderly persons in the area of new technologies are improved and areas of educational activities carried out by the organisations and institutions taking part in the project are extended.

Some of the materials have been used in printing of the book: "Małopolska in Our Memories and Photographs” edited by the participants of the "School of @ctive Senior Citizens.”
