A project meeting takes place in Ljubljana from May 8th, to 11th. We will discuss project outcomes, participate at the ELOA conference and the final project conference in the “Old Power Station”.
An article about the final Oldguys and ELOA conferenc on EPALE website:
We successfully completed an online course lasting 4 weeks. During this time, the participants were acquainted with the problem of education and the inclusion of older men in the community and strategies to overcome it.
Discussions were interesting and participants (in their words) gained a lot of new ideas for working with this target group.
On a Friday, March 15 we began with the introductory workshop that continues with learning online. There are 21 participants enrolled in this course.
You are invited to a final conference of the “Old Guys Say Yes To Community” project. It will take place on May 11th 2019.
The conference will be joined/merged with the 2019 ELOA (Education and Learning of Older Adults) conference.

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.
We have presented our project “Old Guys Say Yes To Community” and its strategic dimension at the University of Ljubljana in the frame of Internal Project Academy of University of Ljubljana.
The meeting with the title “ERASMUS+ 2017: How to make strategic partnership really strategic?” was on 24 November 2016. During the meeting, three different coordinator projects were presented and there was a supporting discussion for new possible applicants. Presentations are available on this web-page.
