The Slovenian section of IBBY is co-organizing an international conference Tales of Age: supported by the Slovenian national committee for UNESCO. The conference will take place on September 13th and 14th in Ljubljana. The aim of the conference is to bring together international experts from the fields of literature, life sciences and philosophy and to open a dialog on ageing with all generations.
Furthermore, we would like to present practical examples of raising awareness about ageing and building a dialog between different generations. We are well aware that many exceptional projects of this type are held in local environments where they make an important difference in the quality of life of local communities, but are rarely given the attention they deserve outside the communities. At the conference, some exceptional Slovenian projects and practices will be presented, however we would also like to widen our horizons by presenting successful projects and practices from around the world.Thus, we open a call for short presentations of projects that deal with raising awareness about ageing and building a dialog between different generations.
