Project’s Keep50+ third meeting and BarCamp in Vilnius

Project’s Keep50+ third meeting and BarCamp took place in the house of Representation of the European Commission in Lithuania from 20th to 21st November.

The meeting and the BarCamp were attended by project partners from Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, France, Spain, and Greece. In the BarCamp sessions, many interesting and valuable ideas were exchanged, moving closer to the development of a proposal for the future 50+ entrepreneurship training program/methodology.

Topics dealt with in Vilnius BarCamp covered themes like “After retirement business ideas”, “Cooperative training for senior entrepreneurs”, “Career management skills for people 50+”, “The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® method for effective workshops involving senior workers” and many other.

Summing up, there are some aspects that seemed to repeat in some or another way in various presentations – firstly, people, who are 50+ should be open to obtaining new skills, secondly, they should cooperate with youth in order to develop their business and they should do it in a sphere they feel passionate about or have specific knowledge about.
