Idea pitch

In the framework of the “ GENE CLAMP 1” project, we already have experience in organizing learning pairs, because all parties were satisfied with the results when measuring satisfaction. We created learning pairs where the elderly were the child’s tutor. At the same time, there was a need for joint IT education of the elderly tutor and the child. This provided further development of the idea for the development of the “ GENE CLAMP 2)” project, which consists of two learning phases in the learnin

What is the specific societal challenge faced by this region?

We have chosen communities where there are seniors with higher education who are happy to activate themselves. We are looking for schools and parents whose students and children are disadvantaged and need to catch up. Process of knowledge transfer between the elderly and the child couples is monitored by mentors and helps the learning of elderly and child couples. In this way, generations learn to cooperate from a social point of view, social dialogue develops.
These communicating little units tell the effects among friends, peers, and in family. Thus, the spread of the method is a socially strengthening factor. In an aging society, it points in the direction of useful old age and thus the young becomes more accepting.
We need to recognize the importance of intergenerational cooperatio

Who are you doing it for?

Multi-generational family models have disappeared, there is no proper social relationship between the elderly and the young. Improving the living conditions of the elderly population, improving the ability to live an active aging life, intergenerational cooperation, organized as a coordinated and joint activity in the form of network cooperation. Building and operating of a relationship between older people living in nursing homes and attending retirement clubs and school children in need of tutoring in their area.

How do you plan to get there?

The selection of participants in the project from those living in nursing homes and members of retirement clubs is the responsibility of the experts of the Association on the basis of the proposal of the staff of the supported organization and voluntary application. The selection of children is made on the basis of a proposal from the teachers of the nearby schools, after parental approval, by the staff named above. Spiritually fresh caregivers were able to interact in an organized way with school children living nearby who lack day care, help with lesson writing, and learning. A well-chosen elderly educator (or an elderly person with a thorough knowledge of a subject area) and a child with difficulties in the given subject, during a regular and thematically organized meeting of one or two per week, could both benefit from the occasional approx. one and a half hours. The implementation of the project is facilitated by the preparation of the auxiliary materials and evaluation discussions (selection criteria, description of the visit order, methodological recommendations, agreements) prepared by the association network. In order to make the learning lessons as effective as possible, the seniors involved in the project also take part in preliminary preparation and ongoing evaluation discussions. These discussions are led by andragogues and educators belonging to the Network.The du

What are the expected results?

As a result of the project, lonely, self-reliant but mentally fresh caregivers living in nursing homes and members of retirement clubs can come into contact in an organized way with school children living nearby who lack day care, help with lesson writing and learning. A well-chosen elderly teacher (or an elderly person with a thorough knowledge of a subject area) and a child with difficulties in the given subject can spend approx. one and a half hours in one school year.
Thus, the processes of old age can be channeled into a channel by which the elderly, who have become isolated in society, have lost their role, and are living with a feeling of becoming redundant, are once again becoming a useful part of society. In addition to the above, this replacement grandparent-grandchild relation

How does your idea strengthen active citizenship at a local and community level?

Improving the living conditions of the elderly population living in the regions of Hungary and related countries, and improving the ability to live an active old age will affect the functioning of society. Building and operating a relationship between generations of older people living in nursing homes and school children around them to help us understand the differences in order to achieve intergenerational cooperation, organized as a joint activity in the form of network cooperation. We have to recognize the importance of intergenerational collaboration, openness, acceptance, flexibility determine successful collaboration, learning together. They develop effective forms of cooperation by respecting and valuing each other. They reform their communication habits (e.g., e-mail communication
