“Senior Talents Award”
This project was originally developed by Banco Real in 1999, to celebrate the International Year of Older Persons, and InterAge has been providing technical consultancy from the beginning. The purpose behind this contest is to foster a higher social participation of older persons, and to appreciate the creative and artistic potential of people over 60 years of age. The contest has helped to mitigate prejudice against old people and ageing, thus fostering the construction of a society for all ages.
Within the competition, InterAge serves as an advisor for the “Outstanding Programs” category, which includes ongoing or programs to be developed and that promote quality of life and integration of older persons in society, and that need resources for their development, consolidation, enhancement or further unfolding. InterAge follows the selected projects up, providing supportive consulting for the programs to reach more effective and sustainable results.
