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.

"Democracy makes people better. Not only are we better off as citizens, we are better off as society. If we don’t learn, we will have no democracy", said professor Ted Fleming today at the #FuturelabAE workshop "Learners as Leaders: Developing Democracy through Change-Oriented Community Education in Ireland". The workshop showcased community education as a propeller for individual and societal change.

We heard inspiring examples on change-driven learning. A group of learners at Roscommon Women's Network - RWN has become active in repurposing clothes, set up a social enterprise and raised awareness on the environmental impacts of fast fashion.
Another group of learners has created an advocacy campaign to change people's attitude against learning disabilities and transformed their own lives at the same time. One of the learners, Amy Bagley had an important advice on how we can all become more active as citizens: "It’s important to be included in everything that concerns you. Dream big, do what you want. Have patience, it will all come together. Nothing is easy, but give it time."
