Non-formal education fosters social inclusion and participation of the elderly

EAEA welcomes the Council’s conclusions on improving the well-being of older persons in the era of digitalisation during the covid-19 pandemic and highlighting the opportunities and potential risks for older persons in a digitalised world. EAEA believes that it is essential to support the elderly during these challenging times as well as moving forward in the aftermath of the pandemic. EAEA agrees that the aspect of ageing will need to be considered in all policy fields and older persons will need to be involved in decision-making processes in order to foster inclusion.
