The GrandExpertS Erasmus + project took centre stage on the All Hallows campus of Dublin City University (DCU) on 11 July 2019. The event was well attended, by members of organisations in the field of ageing and education, as well as interested seniors.
The objective of the GrandExperts project is to empower older adults with specific knowledge and experience to develop digital learning content by themselves and to share it with their peers.
Attending the event, the Lord Mayor of Dublin spoke of the importance of valuing older people’s experience and highlighted the fact that Dublin is an age-friendly city.
The event saw four Irish Grandexperts present their online modules, as well as presentation of other experts by the European partners from Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Bulgaria.
As partner of the project, the German National Association of Senior Citizens’ Organisations (BAGSO) took part in the Irish dissemination event and presented examples from Germany.
