The 10th edition of the “Seniors in Action” competition is going on

We invite you to participate in the nation-wide “Seniors in Action” competition supporting civic activities and inter-generational initiatives carried out by seniors.

 

The Association of Creative Initiatives “ę” and the Polish-American Freedom Foundation invite you to participate in the nation-wide “Seniors in Action” competition for the best senior civic activities and inter-generational initiatives.
The competition is addressed to people 60+ and inter-generational pairs who have an idea of a civic project, want to work on its development, and implement it with support of experts, experienced animators and other program participants. The competition formula is friendly especially to people and organizations who do not have much experience in developing and implementing projects. It is also a unique offer for people who want to acquire new skills useful to their further civic activity.

 

The competition is carried out in the formula of an incubator – it gives space for working out and developing initiatives submitted to the competition through a series of workshops, study tours as well as support and consultation by coaches from the so-called “Network of Flying Culture Animators and Sociologists”.

 

Participation in the competition opens an opportunity to obtain a grant of up to PLN 12,000. The competition fund is intended for 33 grants for implementation of initiatives in which seniors are involved in activities benefitting their neighborhood, dialogue and cooperation with local government, as well as promotion of inter-generational cooperation and senior volunteers.

 

Eligible to apply for grants are people 60+ or inter-generational pairs (a person 60+ and a person aged 18-35) in cooperation with an NGO or an institution which will play the role of an applying entity (e.g. a Third Age University, a foundation or an association, a culture center).

 

We invite you to submit your letter of intent by March 28, 2017. The letter of intent form must be filled out on-line at: www.formularz.seniorzywakcji.pl. Information about the competition can be obtained from the Association of Creative Initiatives “ę”, tel.: (22) 396 55 16 or 19, Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. or email to: listy@seniorzywakcji.pl.
