The European Commission announces the winners of the generations @ school 2013 competition

After last year’s success, the European Commission has organised the second edition of the intergenerational project generations @ school 2013. In honour of the European Year of Citizens 2013, teachers, pupils and older people were invited to organise intergenerational discussions about Europe, its past, its present and what old and young can do together for building the Europe of tomorrow while also gaining a better understanding of each other.

In this second edition over 300 schools from all over Europe entered the competition, sharing their activities with text, photos and videos on the project website. A national and European evaluation process and Jury meeting assessed the entries for their creativity, inspiration, intensity of the intergenerational interaction and thematic presence of the EY Citizens. In three categories, the most outstanding generations @ school activities have been awarded with great prizes.
