This cross-generational cafe is a social project (similar to projects in youth and family clubs), concentrating on bringing generations – especially families, teenagers and seniors – together by playing board games. One of the key intentions of the games café is to integrate elderly people into the community. But it is also a place for passionate board game fans to indulge in their hobby and play challenging strategy games.
To realise it, we need YOU!
These sessions, which are open to everyone, are one pillar of
the project, the other being social workers who visit social
facilities (retirement homes, institutions for people with special
needs, kindergartens, schools, occupational rehabilitation centres,
etc.) to play with the people on site and introduce them to the
world of board games while fostering their abilities.
