About the project

Senior Volunteers for Migrant Integration

Background and target groups

Europe is facing the biggest migrant crisis since the end of World War II: never before have so many people fled political persecution and war as today. At the same time, EU countries encounter the challenge of an aging population, with the number of elderly people growing steadily in relation to the working-age population.

However, many of the retired Europeans still have potential if not to stay in the workforce, then to contribute to the society in many other ways, such as active citizenship and volunteering.

To solve these critical challenges the project addresses two main target groups:

The project is aimed at fostering the development of social, civic, intercultural, volunteering competences by providing representatives of both target groups with unique opportunities to integrate and reintegrate into the society, and at the same time providing mutual support to each other and to the society.
