Project description: Popularisation of chess as an educational activity that develops the mind and personality of young people in joint play with the older generation. Joint activities between juniors and seniors can contribute to bridging differences, overcoming social segregation; fostering greater understanding and respect between generations; contributing to the development of individual skills and abilities; and building more inclusive societies. The solution is to create chess kids – tournaments for seniors with young and older chess players as a tool to promote the sport to young people in the Visegrad Four countries.
