The Project UpSenior

Increasing the Financial Literacy Skills of Senior Citizens

Project Description

Increasing the financial literacy skills of senior citizens is an Erasmus+ Small-scale Partnership in the field of Adult Education involving 3 participating organisations from 3 different countries (Greece, Italy, Bulgaria), working together to address the difficulties faced by the social group of senior citizens in terms of financial literacy. More specifically, the project aims to strengthen the financial literacy skills of senior citizens in the age category of 55+. During the project's activities, the senior citizens will gain knowledge and practical skills for financial documentation, boost their self-confidence through financial education, get familiarized with the various fees and the national charges. This is considered to ensure their financial security and protect them from the financial threats within the modern financial world.


At the local, regional, and national levels, UpSenior’s methodology expects to contribute to the development of skills and competencies of the adult beneficiaries and staff working with adults, to apply the EU Dimensions of adult training, adult policies, and approaches to handle issues related with senior citizens, to contribute to sustainability awareness and social inclusion of the learners, and to expand the trainers’ and staffs’ vision with new training methodologies. At European and international levels, the consortium will implement transnational dissemination of project outputs and create an indirect impact at a European level. It is also expected the widen the partners' networks inside and outside their countries and the creation of new connections with new organizations.
