Lifelong learning is an important contributor to active ageing and ensures that people stay active, have a sense of purpose, do not become socially isolated (with impacts on mental health) and increase their circle of friends to rely upon. The project will research these links from a community perspective and promote how to maximise the positive outcome that result. This strategic project brings together partners with a commitment to working pro-actively and creatively with the project target group and putting in practice ways to engage and motivate older people in active learning. The project focus in supporting older people to learn transcend country boundaries and a transnational approach proved added value and learning opportunities, which will be maximised through effective dissemination and sustainability.
The project aims will be achieved over a 30 month period through the seven partners each hosting a short-term joint staff training event, developing collaborative networks/ approaches and the creation of a Good Practice Guide on How Learning Contributes to Active Ageing.
