EPALE Discussion: Active Ageing and Life Transitions
On 15 July 2021 at 10 a.m. CEST we will host a live-streamed discussion on Active Ageing and Life Transitions, moderated by Gina Ebner and Christin Cieslak of the EAEA joined by Dina Soeiro and Susannah Chambers.
EAEA's representatives will engage Dina and Susannah in a discussion on Active Ageing and Life Transitions. What do we mean when we use those terms? What are the potential chances and challenges which might come with Active Ageing and during Life Transitions?
Our guest speakers will talk about the individual and the European level. We will also have a look at the current stand of Active Ageing in Europe and will explore whether and how the EU currently supports Active Ageing and Life Transitions. The discussion will also focus on what best practice examples can teach us about how to foster Active Ageing in a realistic, non-idealised way, creating more inter-generational solidarity and cohesion in Europe.
