Re-defining masculinity and gender capital
7. Older men's empowerment and intergenerational cooperation
Example of good practice from Estonia: Järva-Jaani shelter for old vehicles
There is almost no older men in Järva-Jaani
town not somehow connected with shelter for old vehicles, which includes old
cars, trucks, tractors, military transport, roadwork and fire brigade
equipment. Members have rebuilt several exponents giving them a new
functionality (for example, they use previous fire brigade truck as a sauna).
Older men usually share their knowledge with younger people, so a common part
of this work is intergenerational learning.
