On Monday, 14th of December 2015, the offical ending of pilot delivery of Face to face program for active ageing will be held at Public University of Ptuj with all participants and their peers-mentors.
The purpose of PPS project (from 2014 until 2016) is to work in the field of active ageing, because life expectancy in Europe is getting longer and we have many people who have already achieved well-deserved retirement, but are still youthful, active and vital.
The project aims to develop and pilot a methodology and training programs to help older adults to remain active by supporting other older adults (55+) to deal with ageing. The methodology is based on peer to peer group facilitation as well as learning and peer facilitation mediated by the Internet.
The emphasis is on understanding of the concept of active ageing, desires and needs of the target group in terms of acquiring new skills and improving physical and mental health.
We congratulate all of them for great involvement, many fresh ideas which will support further program development and their immense enthusiasm about PPS and meetings of the first (pilot) group.
Thank you and see you online, in e-learning or at the final conference!
