Successful development of the multiplier events of the BeOld project

BeOld ev.mult 2.10.2019On September 23rd and 30th, Documenta held two informative meetings to present the BeOld project.

The events, in which took part different representatives of associations and entities in Cantabria, were held at Centro Cultural Eureka and Espacio Joven of the City Hall of Santander.

Both days, the attendees were able to get to know the aims, materials and results of this project that Documenta has been carrying out in Cantabria for two years. Also, when the presentations of the different phases of the project were over, there was a debate on the most important issues, especially on the improvement of the policies aimed at raising awareness on ageism and helping improving the work conditions of older workers.

The BeOld project aims to improve social inclusion of senior workers through the usage of innovative learning tools, improving their possibilities of personal and professional development. Moreover, the project aims to raise awareness on ageism and discrimination based on age in the workplace, as well as to create workplace conditions that are fit for the workers’ age.

The Community Animateurs training starts within the COMANITY project

Comanity septiembre curso

Documenta started on September 4th the Community Animateur Foundation Course, within the COMANITY project whose main beneficiaries are young people at risk of exclusion or who feel at the margins of the system.

Workers and youth volunteers of Amica, La Columbeta, 14 Kilómetros, Padre Meni, Aplec (inclusion + equality) and Agentes de la Calle participate in the training workshops of the Community Animateur Foundation Course. At the end of the course they will acquire the skills and competences needed to become a successful Community Animateur and they will put them in practice through a Participatory Action Research carried out together with young people. The different actions will be shared in the Comanity Hub, a meeting point and learning inclusive environment for the different organisations and youth workers from other countries and the partners of the Comanity project.
