FLEX-SENIORITY – A SHORTCUT TO ACTIVE AGEING Denmark

FLEX-SENIORITY – A SHORTCUT TO ACTIVE AGEING Denmark

Senior Unity of Aarhus, an organisation based in the City of Aarhus, Denmark, seeks to implement on a local level Denmark’s long-running campaign on age-friendly practices within the workplace. The City of Aarhus is committed to helping seniors find purpose and passion later in life and encouraging more seniors to stay longer on the job and improve their health habits. From their own evaluations, they have determined that pre-retirement courses are a shortcut to active ageing and the best answer to the demographic challenges in the EU. Through FLEX-SENIORITY, a new approach that complies with the seniors needs for FLEX-ibility as well as appreciating their valuable experiences of SENIORITY, they will work with local decision makers to organise workshops and courses for both managers and senior workers that will be implemented in public and private workplaces.
