Sharing of good practices, Romania
Dec. 24, 2019

We are extremely grateful for our group of seniors this year. They loved to project so much, they want it to continue. Sp they met with seniors from the Day Center No. 1 in Cluj-Napoca. The event was organized by Ovidiu and moderated by Ina.
The main topic was the SWILI-3 project and how it could be continued on local level during 2020.
We already have a list of possible participants for next year! :-) Amazing!

Sport ambassador: Marjeta, Slovenia
Sept. 9, 2019

This year the focus of the project is on our ambassadors: previously active people in various areas of their life. It can be sport, it can be gardening, it can be learning foreign languages, it can be all of the above. :-) 

They are here to spread the message, that age is just a number and that having an active body and mind, long after retirement can only be beneficial.

Check out Marjeta and her words of wisdom. :-)

The first Slovenian Open House Day!
June 20, 2019

During the project we will host three open house days per partner to reach the people, who we maybe never could otherwise. The goal is to invite friends and family members of our swimmers in the project how a training looks like (dry land training, mindfulness and swimming practice) with the hope that they will want to enrol in something similar in the future. Already we were successful - one of the ladies who came applied, for a swimming course the day after our open house day.
