FUE-UJI, through its European and International Projects Office (EuroFUE-UJI) has presented the results and implementation of the CIA Project, Intergenerational Civic Councils, at the Multiplier Event held at the FUE-UJI. The event has presented the progress of the project and the results obtained after its two years of implementation, as well as the participation of the SECOT initiative, linked to the philosophy of the project based on the exchange of knowledge and ideas between different generations.
Gloria Serra, general manager of the Fundación Universitat Jaume I-Empresa (FUE- UJI), was in charge of welcoming the attendees to the Multiplier Event of the CIA Project, whose opening was attended by Inmaculada Rodríguez, Vice-Rector for Students and Social Commitment of the Universitat Jaume I, who did not want to miss the opportunity to address a few words to the attendees, even virtually. The vice-rector stressed that the training for the creation of Intergenerational Civic Councils carried out by the project is “giving rise to very interesting initiatives”.
Gloria Serra, general manager of the FUE-UJI, then presented the project and its main objective of “promoting the integration of young people into the labour market through intergenerational dialogue”. “Without the participation of both generations these results would not be possible”, added Nela Gómez, director of the EuroFUE_UJI during the presentation of the intellectual product IO1 Operational Manual for the functioning of the Intergenerational Civic Councils, as well as the Training Module for the development of specific skills of the participants in the CIAs.
The following intellectual products are IO2 Practical guide for CIA facilitators and interlocutors and IO3 Collaborative platform for the promotion of Intergenerational Civic Councils, both presented by Anna Tolosa, head of communication and project manager of EuroFUE-UJI. To end the Multiplier Event, the Secot Castellón association presented its mentoring programme for young entrepreneurs, following the philosophy of exchanging experiences between generations and through its formula Experience + Talent = Job Creation.

The Erasmus+ CIA Project organises a training week for international young people and seniors at the FUE-UJI, coordinator of the project. Between 5 and 9 July, the FUE-UJI hosted this training activity in Castelló, which brought together young people and seniors from Portugal, Spain, Poland, Romania and Turkey. The total of 30 participants of the Erasmus+ CIA project Training have received training for the implementation of
Intergenerational Civic Councils in their localities and regions.
Representatives of the different partner organisations of this Erasmus+ project have delivered the training sessions. In addition to the FUE-UJI, INNETICA from Spain, the Directorate of Sport and Youth of Brasov County from Romania, the Sójovem das Saibreiras Association from Portugal, Tavsanli Kaymakamligi from Turkey and the Institute for Research and Innovation in Education Foundation from Poland have given the training.
Participants have enjoyed training in activities focused on communication, teamwork, leadership, implementation of Intergenerational Civic Councils and how to implement and participate in civic actions at local and regional level.
In addition to the different training activities, attendees also enjoyed a series of workshops, linked to the theme of the project for the exchange of experiences between generations. Among them, they were able to enjoy a visit to the Espaitec facilities, where they learned about the advice and mentoring activities for entrepreneurs and young companies from the Secot organisation. They also visited the Museo Inacabado de Arte Urbano (MIAU) in Fanzara, through which they were able to see how art can unite different generations and thus revive the young spirit of rural areas.
After this successful international training, the consortium will continue to work on the following project activities to promote intergenerational knowledge exchange from old to young and thus the development of new and potential personal and professional skills in both generations, as well as the improvement of personal relationships between generations, which has proven to be especially beneficial for the development of both groups.
