Bringing generations and cultures together is the goal of a European group of structures: the Assurance Retraite (France - National Pension System), Cohabilis (France), 1Toit2Ages (Belgium), Solidarios (Spain), EUF (Luxembourg), and ESN France.
Taking advantage of a pilot two-years phase (the Toit+Moi project) of this intergenerational and intercultural initiative, they built WeShareWeCare to connect in Europe seniors and international students through activities and home sharing in Europe.
Starting from September 2019, WeShareWeCare has planned a 3-years work programme to achieve the following objectives:
- Aiming at providing tools to involved stakeholders, the project will study how different national legal frameworks impact practices in several European countries.
- It will explain which factors restrain or impulse intergenerational and intercultural experiences. This will help design a pedagogical guide for students and seniors, a training kit for local associations, and a recommendations booklet intended toward political stakeholders.
