Sharing beyond borders – New ways for care, communication and cooperation of older people along the Danube and in Europe in times of COVID-19

SharingBeyondBorders-DanubeNetworkers-Jul20The aim of the event is to exchange and develop ideas for future cooperation along the Danube and in Europe in times of Corona and afterwards on the basis of impulse lectures and discussions in working groups on topics such as digitalisation, new ways of learning in later life, age-friendly living and inclusive cities, intergenerational dialogue, discrimination in the old age in times of COVID-19 and many more. Special attention will be paid to the use of new interactive media for communication and cooperation online and the question of how to protect older people from social isolation and using their experiences and competences for personal and social engagement.
