🌐‘’ Research depicted that in 2019, 18% of adults in Europe face social isolation while the majority refers to the seniors’ population who find obstacles in engaging in social activities due to social and health constraints.’’ – EC.
👏🎉We are thrilled to announce that Emphasys Centre is participating in the new Erasmus+ KA2 Project ‘’STRONG2GETHER’’! The current project aims to ensure social inclusion, civic engagement, active participation in society and the mental wellbeing of seniors. By developing innovative tools which will promote active ageing. Additionally, it will upgrade the services provided by adult educators that work directly with this group and recognize the ideals of volunteerism and intergeneration learning between the older and younger generations.
💻During the online Kick-off-meeting, the consortium discussed the main objectives of the project and its Project Results, as well as matters related to Quality Assurance, Evaluation and Dissemination.
