Playing and learning with the three generations: the tradition of intergenerational actions continues!
Older people, young people and children, usually have separate activities, at different times and places and there are no places that are specifically designed for interaction with each other. This is a challenge to reduce age discrimination and loneliness.
It all started in 2017, when the 1st Game Festival for Dementia “Bridge Game Jam – Bridges of Life Games” was born in Chalkida! The goal was to create games for people with dementia. The game as a “keyword” was used to enhance the positive interaction of young people and the elderly!
Young people are informed about issues related to the elderly and know, communicate, interact with seniors through play, building bridges between generations. At the same time, people with dementia, older adults and the elderly who live or work in structures such as hospitals, nursing homes, KAPI, structures for dementia, have the opportunity to meet, interact and play with young people, students and students, enjoying experiences and feelings.
Through authentic social interaction, intergenerational activities enhance the relationship between young and old, in ways that are fun and meaningful to all participants. The benefits are mainly located in the areas of learning and emotional understanding, which contribute to the cultivation of positive attitudes and behaviors among the target groups.
Our organization cooperates with educational institutions (primary and secondary schools and training schools IEK) with the Region of Central Greece, with the General Secretariat of Information and Communication, with student groups and with support structures for the elderly.
