(2010) Active ageing and the EU Grundtvig Programme

in Discussion & Reports

Discusses the last 10 years of the Grundtvig programme, which has supported many projects aimed at promoting active ageing and intergenerational cooperation, and examines what the programme needs to do going forward. It argues that experience of the last decade should be drawn on to identify solutions to barriers to learning and make adult learning opportunities better suited to older people, and that information on Grundtvig initiatives that have contributed to responding to the needs of older people should be disseminated.
