This submission from AONTAS (The Irish National Adult Learning Organisation) to the National Positive Ageing Strategy focuses on the lifelong learning needs of older people. It makes recommendations in four areas: i) bridging the digital divide; ii) making lifelong learning needs of older people a priority for older people; iii) collaboration between government departments; iv) facilitating the use of the skills and life experience of older people. Case studies and a "Manifesto for Senior Learners" are included.
