In all situations and phases of life, the aspect of learning always plays an important role. Learning not only takes place in schools and other institutions, but also, or even especially, off such institutions and formal guidelines. Just as little, the acquirement of knowledge can be attributed to a certain age. Elderly people, just as young people, always find themselves in learning processes and in a continous changing and adapting of various conditions and situations of life. But there is an enormous difference between the generations in respect of the acceptance and the handling of learning processes. There is a need to know and accept this difference, when learning with and from each other should be possible, that is what we call inter-generativ education. Therefore, an examination of this topic presupposes a certain neuro-biological and developmental-psychological basis, as well as some knowledge about the various levels of learning processes. An examination where an exchange of knowledge between children and elderly people took place, showed, that there is a huge potential in inter-generative educstion and that the process of giving and taking between learners and teachers of different ages plays an important role.
