The Third Age Knitting Bus Project was launched in Dublin. The project aims to promote happy and meaningful contact between the generations and to raise awareness of Third Age. The target is that older people teach primary school children to knit.
The Knitting Bus will celebrate 2012 International Year of Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity in which all EU member countries are invited to participate.
In Finland, my friends told me they have similar initiatives. How cool!
