This project, coordinated by the Cascais-Estoril Parish Council, was considered a Best Practice on Adult Education, using active learning methodologies for the promotion of senior citizen participation at a European level. The project promoted high quality learning opportunities and developed a strategic and innovative program to engage older people in lifelong learning.

Focusing on active aging, the project involved volunteer work and community activities based on diverse themes such as European citizenship, nature and environment, interculturality, social inclusion among others.

A mixed senior volunteer mobility program was developed, and four local and one international event was organized. An innovative dissemination strategy focused on awareness, understanding and action. It used various tools, such as meetings with stakeholders, webpage, newsletters, social network, media, multiplier events and merchandising.
