With emphasis on senior people we want to improve their social, mental and physical health and through the senior peoples stories to bring the young generation closer to them. In that way the young generation can learn more about their municipality’s cultural heritage and both generations can become part of intergenerational communities, where they can thrive both socially, mentally and physically. We also hope that Ringkøbing-Skjern municipality will benefit from these stories and intergenerational walks by making the municipality more attractive in regards of the population, local enterprises and tourists.
