Resumen del libro

The research approach and framework of this project is going to be mainly a qualitative methodology also complemented by documentary analysis and secondary data. The techniques of social research will be finally face to face interviews in Spain and Cyprus. Number of each type of technique are described in the present guide. Also, we describe the type of relevant informants and people working and involved in the project. The project’s intention is to endorse intergenerational dialogue and intangible heritage as effective practices for building coherent societies. According to “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Developments- UN”, essential elements for achieving Social sustainability are the opportunities given to different generations to build healthy and adoptive communities. Human societies have constantly developed and adapted their intangible cultural heritage, in order to address fundamental needs and social issues across time and space. Taking into consideration the above, partnership will implement intergenerational dialogue through interviewing citizens living in the same communities enabling at the same time their civic engagement and active participation, as one of the selected priority of the project. The interviews will be framed to collect the perceptions of different generations through their life stories narratives promoting active ageing as another selected priority (Sanz, 1995, 1997, 2005, 2006, 2009). In addition, citizens with fewer opportunities and diverse backgrounds will have the opportunity to get involved in interviews and have their testimonies shared among the community. The above objective is directly linked to the horizontal priority of inclusion and diversity. Further to the above objectives, partnership aims to develop a digital archive of intangible heritage based on the results of the interviews, targeting to bridge the intercultural, intergenerational and social gap. Digital archives will be permanently displayed, with the installation of Info-Kiosks in social spaces of partners’ communities, like museums and municipalities, promoting Erasmus+ among citizens and generations. The interactive environment of info kiosks provides better access to knowledge, promotes experiential experience and helps to achieve better impact and sustainability of projects results. One of the important aspects of the project is the recording. After the recording, a digital archive will be developed which will be accessible to the public. This generates a great socio-cultural richness. Mainly, because it can imply the beginning of a narrative related to intangible heritage exposed to the gaze of people of different ages who can identify with what is exhibited there; counting on the promotion of intergenerational dialogue so important and necessary in our complex and technological society that poses new and diverse social, cultural, political and economic challenges; as well as, the adequate management of the risks of our society (crisis, virus, climate change). Intangible heritage is a treasure to be preserved. Thus generating the promotion and assumption of the importance of social sustainability.
