Beginning of the project ELiS

Civil_societyBelgrade, June 2011 Adult education society has signed an agreement with the EU Delegation in the republic of Serbia, which was official beginning of the ELiS project in Serbia. The aim of this one-year project is to contribute to the development of non-discriminatory and inclusive society in the process and create a new image of the elderly in Serbia and it will be implemented in partnership with dvv international. Contrary to prevailing prejudice that elderly are passive and mostly a burden to society, the pursuit of the project is to promote active aging, and examine the pervasive stereotypes through the media campaign and photo contest. Photo exhibitions will be held across five cities in Serbia (Belgrade, Novi Sad, Užice, Leskovac and Bor), and the best photo will be awarded. More information about the project can be found on the facebook page Elis Projekat.
