Lifelong learning has become firmly established in the lexicon of those who work in the field of education. However, do we really provide equal chances for education for all generations? The education of older people in the Eastern Partnership region and in Russia is still in its infancy and is carried out rather thanks to the efforts of enthusiasts.
The situation is even worse with civic education for the elderly. What is the reason for this? With the fact that the government is often not interested in this, or do older people themselves do not see the point of remaining / becoming active citizens? What social effects can the education of the elderly give? What challenges should those who are going to start/continue working in this field prepare for?
All this will be discussed by experts representing successful practices of educational work and activation of elderly people from Belarus, Russia and Ukraine.
