European society is ageing. More and more older people are requested or even pushed to continue to be active in employment, family, our communities and in wider society. With this population change it is vital that we ensure that harmony remains between generations and that there is a better understanding of what ageing means – personally and to the society we live in. It is essential therefore that there is training for those committed to working with older people to enable them to continue to fulfil a role confidently and competently in the world around them.

The objective of the seminar is a better understanding of the role of education in later life related to citizenship and well-being, encouraging active ageing and better communication between and across generations and an exchange of good practice.

The seminar will stimulate and motivate you to organize, moderate and facilitate later life learning. It creates the opportunity to develop your own competence and methodological skills for learning in later life. Moreover, you will meet partners for international projects in this field.
