By 2050, the number of people aged 55-64 still active in the labour market will represent 28.5% of the European population. This will bring major challenges unless actions are taken to reconcile the differences in the labour market between older and younger generations. Intergenerational learning through mentoring and reverse mentoring practices can be a response to those challenges.
Intergenerational Mentoring and Learning in the Workplace (LearnGen) project aims at supporting working adults of different generations to develop core mentoring skills. The project also intends to support SMEs in designing, implementing and monitoring peer mentoring programmes and practices to fight ageism and social exclusion in the workplace.
