Beatbox im Pflegeheim: how intergenerational music was made in a Stuttgart nursing home

In a Stuttgart nursing home young students and trainees found out how rewarding it can be to spend time with the elderly. By experimenting  with making music and musical instruments together (including Beat Boxing!), the young and old experienced the world through each others eyes.

This educational project won the “JUGENDSOZIAL STIFTUNG ZEIT FÜR MENSCHEN” Award from the Council for Sustainable Development (RNE). It is one of 40 winners in the RNE – competition ” Intergenerational Dialogue in Practice – Citizens Initiate Sustainability ”
