Eligible to apply for grants are people over 60 or intergenerational couples (a person of 60+ and a person of 18-35 years) in cooperation with an NGO or institution that will act as the entity applying for the grant (e.g. a Third Age University, foundation, association or culture center). The competition is addressed to those who have an idea of a social project, want to work on its development and implement it with support from experts, experienced animators and other program participants. Such form of the competition is helpful especially for those people and organizations who do not have much experience in projects developing and implementing. It is also a unique offer for those who want to get new skills useful in their further social activities.
The competition is carried out in a form of incubator – it gives space to improve and develop ideas presented in submitted applications through the series of workshops, study visits and support and consultation from so-called Flying Culture Animators and Sociologists instructors.
The participation in the competition opens the opportunity to receive financial support of up to PLN 12,000. Ca. 33 grants will be awarded under the competition for implementation of initiatives that involve seniors into activities for the benefit of their neighborhood, include them into a dialogue and cooperation with local self-government, promote intergenerational cooperation and senior volunteering.
To date, under 10 rounds of the competition, we have supported 300 projects implemented all over Poland.
