Internationale ForAge Konferenz 2014

New Directions and New Learning in Later Life
Taking the Learning to the Learner; Active and Healthy Ageing; Learning Communities

7 - 8 November 2014, Porto, Portugal

Conference website: http://aidlearn.wix.com/forageconference14

WHAT is it all about
Active and healthy ageing are strong themes and campaigns across Europe. They do not always - but should- include access for older people to education and learning as a key element. We need to consider the potential of later life learning opportunities, based in the community as well as in classroom, for the well-being and empowerment of older people as well as the enrichment of society.
