“Everything new is well-forgotten old” and “it isn’t about age, it’s about attitude” – these two statements are the main core of the project. “Old like new” is about helping old people not to get old in their mind (lifelong learning).
It is about old (traditional) wisdom that nowadays can be used as innovative or alternative, like healing herbs, health rituals, healing music, healthy food and products of nature.
7 villages in Daugavpils and Zarasai region – Višķi, Biķernieki, Kalkūni, Kalupe, Salakas, Smalvos, and Degučiai – want to be seen in new light with active, educated, healthy, creative and content people.
Project emphasizes sense of community, cooperation between generations, providing a chance to bring different generations together for lifelong learning, cooperation, transfer of traditional knowledge and wisdom as well as ability to see new opportunities and added value in the way sense of community contributes to the level of improvement of life in their villages.
During the project various activities will be implemented in Daugavpils and Zarasai regions:
“Old like new” means to find a solution to improve living conditions in deprived communities in creative approach – THE OLD (traditions, events, people, etc.) making into THE NEW – finding, creating and telling stories about uniqueness of their villages and make them feel proud instead of abandoning them.
