The aim of this article is to introduce the origins and work of the Gdansk University of the Third Age (GUTW), which celebrates its fifth anniversary this year. The GUTW operates within the organisational framework of the University of Gdansk and was established by a resolution of the University Senate in October 2004. The article's authors focus in particular on the educational role that the GUTW plays in the Tri-City community of older adults by meeting their needs in terms of lifelong learning. The students' participation in the lectures and workshops has become an inspiration for a group of students to take up activities which go beyond the GUTW curriculum, for instance to participate more consciously in culture, program their self-development and join others in developing interest groups and their agendas. One example of an interest group activity is the Education Without Borders GUTW Student's Scientific Group, which operates under the scientific guidance of Tomasz Maliszewski Ph. D. to carry out its projects in the educational and cultural milieu of the Gdansk Coast and allow its members to fulfil their own research aspirations.
