eScouts – Intergenerational Learning Circle for Community Service
eScouts aims to develop an innovative intergenerational learning exchange between elderly and youth volunteers, centred on development of the digital competences of the eldest and guidance to the youngest to better face their upcoming adult life challenges. The aim is to build a comprehensive multi-target inter-generational blended learning/mentoring path to establish a dialogue between two social groups at risk of exclusion: Youth and the Elderly. The fragmentation of contemporary societies and communities too often makes it difficult to achieve a satisfying intergenerational dialogue and creates separation and alienation from the history and the memory of the locations where people live and from the larger societies of belonging.
