Short project description

The project focuses on analysis and comparison of forms and methods of the education of older adults in the Visegrad countries. The aim of the project is to use outputs of analysis and comparison to support nonformal and informal education of older adults – we want to contribute to solving problems of an ageing population.

  1. wider social contexts of the education of older adults (terminology – older adults; political, legislative, economic, social and cultural aspects; outline of development since 2004 – the EU join);
  2. older adults and work life (labor market; discrimination and equal treatment; older adults – employees; age management in organizations; education and development of older adults in organizations);
  3. system of education of older adults (institutionalization; providers of education of older adults; content specialization of education);
  4. methods of education of older adults (traditional and contemporary trends and prospects);
  5. comparison of national researches of the above listed thematic areas.
