According to the international report on Ageing and Health (WHO, 2015), people over 60 will go to nearly 2 billion in 2050 from the current 900 million; Japan is the country with the longest life expectancy, Italy is second in the world and first in Europe. These demographic changes pose social and health problems that must be addressed not so much from a welfare point of view as by spreading lifestyles that minimize the period of non-self-sufficiency of an individual’s life. The TEMPUS Project CTAE aim is to promote the active ageing through Education and Social Inclusion using a multidisciplinary approach and collecting evidence of good practices from different countries.
The project Boards
The CTAE project has been selected as “a success story” and “a good practice example” by a panel of experts from the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture of the European Commission.
