Vennesla municipality on study tour to Vejle, Denmark
Vennesla municipality focuses on maintaining and developing the voluntary work, including activities towards the seniors. Having this as a background, they made arrangements to visit the Danish partner in the iAge project. The purpose of the visit was to be informed of the work being done in Hedensted and to exchange experiences, get new ideas and otherwise learn from each other.
The visit took place 14 and 15 January with Dagne Ropstad from the municipality and two persons from the Voluntary Central. They had a tour around the municipality, visited a senior fitness center and attended meetings with people who were responsible for voluntary work at different levels.
The conclusion so far is that the visit was very useful. They experienced how things are being done in this field in Hedensted and got some concrete ideas that they will use further in work.
People from Hedensted will pay a return visit to Vennesla later this year
