The EU is made of its citizens and for its citizens! Encouraging and facilitating wider involvement of citizens in the European Union and in what it stands for is of great importance.

Volunteering is nowadays a tool for participation in society in various fields, establishing itself as an enriching experience that allows the development of social skills and competences.

Demographic ageing is one of the major challenges for many societies and ‘active ageing’ has become a policy priority within the European Union. The term ‘active ageing’ has had several meanings including economic productivity; opportunities for leisure and recreation; political activism; social investment; and engaging older people as partners and givers through volunteering. The link between voluntary action and citizenship has been established since the Second World War, but in recent times, the connections between volunteering, active ageing and citizenship have never been so strong.

In this context arises the project “Plan Be: Active Senior Volunteers”.





"Plan Be" has been awarded with
Erasmus+ Best Practice Prize 2018
