In Brno, where the Seniors’ Day is celebrated on September 18 at Zelné trhu, this year’s senior event is intergenerationally linked with the Family Passports project, and the morning stage program is thus prepared for families with children.
The International Day of Senior Citizens has only become known here in recent years, but in most countries of the world, people have been commemorating it since 1998.
This holiday not only offers an official framework for emphasizing the warm relationships of children with their own grandparents, but also represents an opportunity for fulfilling the idea of actively re-engaging the elderly in social events.

It probably comes to everyone’s mind to bring a flower to a senior citizen on a holiday, invite grandfather for a drink, offer grandparents a joint visit to the theater, concert or exhibition.
However, from the point of view of those born earlier, a simple and seemingly ordinary sitting with a coffee in a close family circle or in a pleasant cafe or pastry shop can be no less valuable.
