How can cooperation between young and old function well at work? In what way can young and old employees benefit from each other?
In the frame of the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations, teams of young and old in Austria are asked to participate in the competition "Dialogue of generations at the workplace - The team competition for young and old people."
Mixed teams of adolescents (15 to 25 years) and older persons (45+) who are employed in companies, organizations or institutions in Austria are invited to submit their ideas and creative suggestions and proven good practice examples of solidarity between generations at their workplaces.
This will then serve as a basis for a series of short films. A professional jury will select the best ideas and develop them as film scripts.
At the closing gala in Vienna on 30 November 2012 the results of this intergenerational cooperation will be shown and the awards will be presented, as well as the finalized short films.The prizes are a trip to Brussels, money and other attractive prizes.
All information about the competition and how to participate is available at www.dialogdergenerationen.at
