Keys to Giving Back aims to tackle the challenge of promoting an active ageing population to allow for social cohesion and higher productivity, in particular for the newly retired, allowing them to successfully transfer their years of experience and knowledge to a younger generation of associations, businesses, and entrepreneurs. However, transferring knowledge and know-how does not always come naturally and can be frustrating to those who don’t have prior teaching or coaching experience. Therefore, through K2GB, we will focus on developing teaching methods for those interested in passing on their competencies.
As an ERASMUS+ strategic partnership, the Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices project K2GB is held from October 2018 to 2020 and consists of 4 European exchanges of good practice. The exchanges include 2 in 2019 in Turkey and the Netherlands and 2 in 2020 in Portugal and France. The aim is to gather information from partner countries on how the retired generation is transferring their knowledge to the younger generation while simultaneously remaining active members of the community. The information will be collected, and a toolkit will be created to help the older generation better transfer their skills.
The project is coordinated by Jupiter Association (France) in partnership with;
– ILA (Netherlands)
– Previform – Laboratório, Formação, Hygiene e Segurança no Trabalho, Lda (Portugal)
– Istanbul Avrupa Arastirmalari Dernegi (Turkey)
