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.


Where in your community do you identify intergenerational learning? What knowledge do older men have that could be shared with the younger generation?
