giovanna-nuncia.jpgWith the SenVol project the partners will exchange and gain experience from other countries in the field of volunteering. The project aims to raise awareness for the importance of volunteering. It will showcase volunteering of older people in different settings and cultures of the participating countries and show that our society nowadays would not really work without volunteering.

SenVol will also highlight the learning process that happens during volunteering. And we will also promote the fact that older people have a unique knowledge and lots of experiences and can pass their knowledge to others, also to the younger generation.

SenVol will promote the process of active ageing and it will give senior volunteers an opportunity to share their knowledge, skills and experiences with others, on regional and European level, for a constant and better integration of volunteers in active life.So, we will involve the target group of older people in the project and encourage older people to participate in voluntary work in their region, but also European wide.

During the project the partners will collect and reflect on good practice examples of senior volunteering. As an outcome the project partners will develop a guideline for volunteers and for volunteer organisations.
