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?

The Topics

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.
