P.E.O.P.L.E. - Exchange and best practice network to support older workers in the EU (2)

The Pan European Older Person's Learning & Employment (P.E.O.P.L.E.) network funded by the EU Leonardo Da Vinci programme held its first meeting in Paris on 26-27 October. The objective of this project is to develop a best practice network, research, education and communications system between EU partner organisations who are addressing the issues of ageism and promoting the interests of older working age people (50-65+), particularly in relation to education, training and employment.
