Summary of the Project

The NesilFEST (Generation Festival) was developed as an output of the local project called AYNA which our organization implemented last year in cooperation with Turkish Ministry of Family and Social Policy. The idea of the project is to organize a better communication between youth and elderly people, by involving them in different activities. The Project
consists of diverse modules for the development of different skills and competences.
As System and Generation Association, we want to host groups of 28 volunteers on 2 months short term EVS, within the Volunteering for Generation-NesilFEST2015 Project starting from November 2015. There will be 7 volunteers in each group which is formed as 1 volunteer from each country, Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia and
Macedonia. We have planned a learning-oriented course for our volunteers in preparation-execution-dissemination of NesilFEST. In an age that inter-generational interaction is declining, we want to carry out the NesilFEST, which is the product of a successfully completed project called Active Lifestyle-Oriented Inter-generational Interaction Model Project, four times a year. During the project, which is an example of social entrepreneurship, mainly non-formal education methods will be
used and “meeting of generations” themed activities and workshops will be held. Within the framework of NesilFEST preparations, there are five modules to be applied;
