European Day of Intergenerational Solidarity was celebrated 2 years in a row on the 29th of April 2009 and 2010. On both occasions, youngsters and elders alike enjoyed themselves with music, traditional dances, local singers, coffee, juice, donuts and last, but not least, a very sunny and friendly atmosphere. The games and contests aimed to improve the way that members of the community from different age groups work with each other.
THE OPENING OF THE INTERGENERATIONAL CENTRE coincided with the 1st celebration of European Day of Intergenerational Solidarity. Prior to the event, Second Chance volunteers renovated the old local centre by setting up a modern kitchen and creating a pensioners’ club. Also, the garden was renovated by building an alley, a fence and a playground and by planting flowers and trees.
