See-Green Project: Senior Engagement in a Green Economy ©

Launched in 2012 in the context of the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations, the primary aim of the See-Green Project is to improve senior citizens' knowledge of energy efficient practices and schemes through learning programmes. Care homes, private homes, residential villages and social clubs in partner countries Italy, UK, Spain, Netherlands, Bulgaria and Greece will be included in the learning programme.

Furthermore, the training materials developed will promote techniques and changes that can be adopted to make senior citizen dwellings more energy efficient. The managers of senior citizen residences will use the materials to create awareness and involve residents in energy saving activities, giving them an integral participatory role in the energy efficiency efforts of their residences.

See Green will use new methodologies and create flexible, plain language adult education material on European standards and energy efficiency in buildings. The target group is European senior citizens, but the materials will cater to the different socio-economic, geographical or cultural situations within this group. In this sense, the project moves away from the current mainstream of considering senior citizens a homogeneous group.

The main result will be a complete training system located on an e-Learning platform, which will include procedures, modules, and educational materials integrated by a simulation software tool. All tools will be developed with the specific learning needs and capacities of senior citizens in mind.

Staffordshire University – which is one of the 6 partners in the project - is working with a range of senior citizens to make short films for many of the topics currently under development by the See Green project. Some of these short films can be seen online.
