Description

Since September 2019, AFEdemy is coordinator of the Erasmus+ project “Hands-on training and tools on smart healthy  age-friendly environments (Hands-on SHAFE)”.

Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments (SHAFE) support independent living, active lifestyle and participation in society for every citizen, no matter if someone is young or old, handicapped or healthy, rich or poor. To provide easily accessible tools to actually realize SHAFE, AFEdemy initiated the Hands-on SHAFE project.

Hands-on SHAFE aims to deliver informal learning experiences and hands-on tools to implement SMART and HEALTHY BUILT environments or to develop BUSINESS in this area. The learning experiences aim to enable facilitators (volunteers, formal and informal caregivers) to create smart healthy age-friendly environments for themselves, their parents, neighbours or friends.

Hands-on SHAFE will focus on 4 main building blocks: SMART, HEALTHY, BUILT and BUSINESS.

Objectives

The overall expected outcomes of the Erasmus+ Hands-on SHAFE project are:

  • The improvement of the smart, physical and social environments at local level to foster social inclusion for all,
  • The improved empowerment of people with low skills or low qualifications who work at local level or act as volunteer for their parents, family or neighbourhoods and
  • To increase the opportunities for them to become a social entrepreneur.
