On the 5-9th of October International Adult Training Project (ATP) meeting took place in the new building of Kolping College (A. Jakšto St. 6, Kaunas). Educational workers, students and studying seńors that arrived from 4 countries – Italy, Turkey, Great Britain and Sweden participated in this meeting.

The meeting is the part of the financed project of Grundtvig program of the European Union. Already for two years the adult training project “What’s On the Web” (WOW!) is being pursued in Kolping College. The main objective of the project is to strengthen the communication between the generations and to teach the seńors to use the Internet. With reference to this project, students of Kolping College have a possibility to introduce Skype, electronic banking, e-mail, Google search and other main Internet programs to the people of older age. Seńors from Prienai foster home, Kaunas Panemunė foster home, also a big team of seńors belonging to Kolping association community actively integrated into the team of studying seńors. Each student meeting with seńors is a step towards to the world which is well known to some and very strange to other people. Youth meetings of such kind with seńors happen in five more European educational institutions: in Italy, Turkey, Great Britain, Sweden and Germany.
