The objective of the learning-training activities

The Salud +60 / Health 60+ project is a Key Action 2 project in the strand of exchange of good practices.

The main project activities consist of outreach actions in the local societies and on a national level, to professionals and practitioners in the health care sector as well as adult educators, representatives of associations and volunteering organisations. These people/organisations (in the broader sense) are addressed on the basis of their activities around health care, health literacy, life skills and competences training.

During the learning activities of the project, which include study visits, the hosting partner detects relevant professionals and organisations, and they are invited to present their work as well as give us their opinions on the topic we address along with suggestions and proposals based on their experiences, on how to support further our topic in a way that it reaches and positively affects people.

The Health 60+ partnership has foreseen the planning and realisation of 3 such activities in 3 countries – Spain, Cyprus and Greece.

You can find the information of the learning activities’ results below, followed by presentations and findings from each mobility carried out so far.

Analysis of the existing barriers on the matter and how to overcome them: Motivation and Awareness

Madrid (ES) - 24 to 26 November 2021
1st Learning activity / exchange


The purpose of this first activity is to present the medical and health service model in the participating countries.

Each partner will make a presentation of the healthcare service delivery model in its context.

The objective is to analyze the possible meeting points between the health authority and the adult training programmers.

Identifying who is the most appropriate interlocutor and seeking the formula to develop an understanding with these professionals are the objectives pursued with this activity.

Likewise, this connection will be sought between the knowledge and experience provided by health professionals and the motivational techniques that are characteristic of adult education.

The main objective of this activity is to find a way to combine these health and educational components to effectively adapt them to the target group of people over 60.

To this end, we will develop a guide that allows us to protocolize the connection between both health and educational institutions.

The participants selected by the partners will be educators, trainers, professionals in the adult education sector and health professionals with experience in working with people over 60 and the elderly.

Physical, mental and social activity: Practical experiences

Patras (GR) - 15 to 17 June 2022
3rd Learning activity / exchange


Activity 3 is a practical learning experience. Based on the draft of the general guide on Self-Management and Prevention common to all partners, each of them will present a practical application that they have implemented on the selected subjects: Physical Activity, Mental and Social Activity, and Independence.

The objective of this activity is to link different training initiatives to work towards the same educational initiative. It is about addressing the achievement of training objectives through
alternative teaching strategies.

The implementation of training focussed on training of trainers will have logical similarities, but also enriching differences. We seek to find educational solutions arising in different social and medical-health contexts, but which may be of general utility for the entire consortium.

The participants selected by the partners will be educators, trainers and professionals from the adult education sector with experience in working with people over 60 and the elderly.
