Intergenerational Project “Seniors and Youth”

OrientaEuro Belgium asbl has developed an intergenerational relationship between Seniors and youth, with the ultimate aim of sharing experiences, helping young people choose their studies and careers and for them to learn from their elders about how to be satisfied at work and fulfilled in life. This is a useful and innovative “bonus” tool offered to the youth in order to help them as much as possible in choosing the best studies and future career.

“Moed!”, “Don’t be too harsh on yourself!”, “Il faut vivre ses passions!”

…Those would be the exemplary pieces of advice in Dutch, English and in French that some of the Seniors living in Belgium would like to share with the young adults prior to them choosing their career or studies.

OrientaEuro is carrying out a “Seniors and Youth” project approaching Seniors of Brussels and asking them about their own life and professional experiences, and the possible regrets or mistakes they had made throughout their lives so that you can make the best school and career choices by learning from the elders’ experience. Here, we will share with you some of the advice we think is still relevant nowadays.
