Study visit in Australia

A tour of Men’s Shed was organized by Barry Golding for several delegates from Europe in February 2017, among others also members of this project. All together we visited 13 Sheds in Victoria and one in New Zealand. What we’ve seen and experienced during our interesting research trip is of enormous importance for our further research.
We would sincerely like to thank all of the shedders/blokes for such a warm welcome and so open and friendly socializing with us during our visit. Stories, which they shared with us, have changed our lives and influence our perceptions about different needs regarding age and gender. We are now even more convinced that community is a right and the best place for everybody to share, connect and help, but also to receive when needed.

Thank you!
