2012 is the European Year of Active Ageing. Along these lines, the project RIVER aims to promote active-aging senior volunteering with a focus on validating the development of personal, social and organisational competences during the volunteering activity.
From the 7.11. to 9.11.2012 both the partners of the RIVER project and some of the trainers that will pilot the RIVER methodology met in Rome. Main reason for the meeting was a 2-day training workshop on the LEVEL5 based RIVER validation methodology. The subsequent partner meeting dealt with the preparation of the piloting and the interim report.
The Workshop took place in the very nice venue of one of the italian partners, CSVNet, opposite to Santa Maria Maggiore. The next step will be the piloting of the LEVEL5 approach in volunteering activities.
