unaVision Learning Journeys

We have experiemented with several learning journey formats during the last years and think this is a great idea to develop further within the unaVision network.

The 4 M approach for learning journeys

  • Move physically and mentally, change your perspectives, open up!
  • Meet people from different sectors, cultures and generations, learn from their knowledge, experience, wisdom and personal mastery
  • Make and co-develop products, services and systems, get new skills become creative, implement concepts, be a social entrepreneur and create new ventures who serve the people and society
  • Multiply and share your experiences and knowledge, tell your story, write articles, poetries, books, make drawings and films

SenTour - EU Senior Travel Experience

With the SENTour Connect project ThinkCamp is co-developing with partners from Spain, Belgium, Slovenia, Austria, Italy and Portugal innovative learning journey packages for seniors.

Learning Journeys offer the opportunity to dive into the spirit of regions and to learn about special skills and traditions. You meet locals, learn from them, but may also share their expertise with people from the regions. Long-term off season tourism of several weeks to several months may intensify the insights into the local culture. This is a win-win situation for the regions and the visiting guests. This is a prototype Learning Journey packages co-developed within the SENTour Connect project.

The SENTour Connect project started from the idea that the senior market is an area for tourism expansion in low season within the European Union. Travel is a means to prolong a quality of life and Europe has a growing senior population for whom this is an important issue.The main objective of the project is to facilitate transnational tourism exchanges for seniors in the low season within the European domestic market.To do this, the project aims at creating innovative and sustainable transnational tourism packages for seniors, and improving the tourism seasonality patterns across Europe.
