Time:23.09.2014 - 24.09.2014
Location:Bonn, Germany

Education’s contribution to an active and socially integrated lifestyle in later life - Aktive Lebensgestaltung im Alter - was kann Bildung leisten?

The conference focuses on various aspects of education for elderly, especially in the third and fourth age (post-professional phase). Considering a continuously aging society and the progressing demographic change the focused target group is rapidly growing and becoming more and more heterogeneous. Claims, wishes and interests of this target group have changed. The conference's aim is to illustrate conditions under which elderly benefit from education as a motivating and activating factor for a satisfying and self-determined lifestyle. This is done through expert discussion as well as presentation of existing best practice in this field.

The conference will be held in German.
