"2 in 1" is the idea to involve OLD and YOUNG generation in their interactive communication with the aim to tell each other their own story and share the view of life as ONE!

About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

The communication between generations has been still weak and seniors feel lonely without the opportunity to be in a talk with the young people. Seniors wish to share their experience, best practice and willingness to support the young generation who needs to listen their own life story and learn best practice. "2 in 1" means to understand each other with the aim to become as "ONE" in a practical view of daily life.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Communications - Fundraising - Networking - Social Enterprise = Business and Social Enterprise "2 in 1" means a process to realize the outputs of the practical view of daily life exchange between generations (OLD and YOUNG) with the target to help young people in their starts up and on the other side through their activities (business) to keep seniors as their potential new partners. The natural form of such an activity is to settle the social enterprise ("2 in 1" incubator) and show the agefriendly environment. This process means the story contribution, named local needs and conditions, inter-generation communication, output, result application = OLD generation best practice in YOUNG innovation up to their local needs.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

To settle the "2 in 1" incubator (inter-generation social enterprise in agefriendly environment): 1) story contribution - seniors like the history and nature, 2) local needs and conditions - historical monuments but a lack of visitors as well the green plants around, 3) inter-generation communication - old and young share their view of these local problems how to bring an action i.e. use the historical heritage and support the green, 4) output - young people support the old for a tour guide practice and learn senior management skills and practical tips to settle the local travel agency, also talk in their families, 5) result application - visitors in their village and green plants as the families alley around.

Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.

To create the active social enterprise mapping the local needs and conditions, bringing old and young in the interactive communication, being tolerant, patient and listen to them as well learn from their stories considering the immediate - strong short term effect. The quality level means that the "2 in 1" incubator´s output as the pattern model can be repeated for a long term effect. The multiplier effect being modified up to local needs and conditions. Target groups: OLD and YOUNG (in tenths) by the direct involvement, public (thousands) in indirect way by the dissemination (e.g. media, DVD, blog, social net, web, presentations at universities, schools, dialogue with local authorities, stakeholders, senior clubs, brochure of successfull stories,photo exhibition). How the story of OLD is helpfull for YOUNG and support the local growth is a story of "2 in 1"!

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

This project can request the budget for the start up. Can be supported by local authorities, stakeholders. But if we can talk to be financialy independed we start as the volunteers (local active seniors and young people). And after that we focus on own effective activities as the "2 in 1" incubator and try to earn money....for the next future development as well motivate local authorities to be co-operative.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

e.g. Tell one tell all Meeting places for elder vitizens 50- plus Entrepreneurs Active Age programme Each project contributing the specific view of the field of Active Ageing process and different solution how to solve the asking questions. My contribution is given in the synergie of OLD and YOUNG potential with the economic effective impact which can be directly involved in the local growth.

Founding Story

Train and coach people in project activities means to meet, talk and listen to people and their needs. We change our experience, ask the questions, talk our stories with the aim to create the project idea which is under the impact of our cooperation. The aims of our projects follow up the needs and the conditions in which we are living. The project´s content describes what we like to solve and how we can improve the daily life. When we are older and older we feel the need to share a talk and serve our experience. If the opportunity is given and this talk is fruitfull and bring the result we can go on. That is the reason why I settled the non-profitable company named "EU a MY 50+" as the platform for active ageing people in progress.
