Description

Project “Old but Gold” is intended to increase awareness about old age and in particular making young people more sensitive to the needs and problems of the elderly. The project would be implemented through workshops in secondary schools where, apart from themed lectures, the participants would personate an elderly person by putting on an aging simulator and doing everyday activities while wearing it. The project is directly addressed to youth although it also indirectly helps the older generation.

The aim of the “Old but Gold” project is increasing awareness about old age and in particular making young people more sensitive to old age. The project entails a series of workshops directed at youth in secondary schools in Bydgoszcz. During the meetings, the participants would find out how the ageing process sets in and how to look after one’s health so that old age would be propitious. An unusual turn in the meetings would involve the participants turning into elderly persons by putting on an aging simulator and carrying out basic activities of everyday life (e.g. , drinking, eating, brushing one’s teeth, walking up and down the stairs). Such an experience will allow them to “tangibly” get a sense of what the nature of old age is like, which will help us treat the elderly with greater understanding and respect. The concept would be implemented at the beginning of the first semester of the 2018/2019 school year. The project is directly addressed to youth although it also indirectly helps the older generation.
