Project Salud+60 has begun!
The first Transnational Meeting for project Salud+60 (Health+60) was held on February 08th. Even thought the meeting had to be carried out online due to the ongoing pandemic, that did not prevent the session from being highly fruitful, setting us for a good start in this exciting journey!
Salud+60 is a project developed within the framework of the Key Action 204 of the Erasmus+ programme. The project is coordinated by the Spanish Federation of Popular Universities (FEUP) and it is based on the cooperation between KERIGMA (Portugal), EUROCULTURE (Cyprus) and DAFNI KEK (Greece). The focus of the project is education aimed at promoting awareness and self-management of physical, mental and social health among people over the age of 60.
The motivation for the project is rooted in the acute need of European societies to enhance active aging. This has become even more evident in light of the COVID-19 crisis, which has disproportionally affected our elders the most.
Within the project, we will carry out three learning, teaching, training activities (LTT), where the project partners will share their expertise and exchange good practices in adult education on the project topic.
Through the exchange of good practices, project Salud+60 will develop a guide containing a description of different cooperation models between health-care agents and adult education associations, as well as the collection of best teaching methodologies for health education aimed at people over 60.
We welcome you to join us on this journey and learn with as along the way. Stay tuned!
