The overall objective of AFE-Activists is to support and train older adults who want to promote and foster age-friendly environments in their cities and communities and to influence municipal agencies in their decision making so that the infrastructures and services are adapted to the diverse capacities, realities, needs and preferences of all residents of all ages. With this aim in mind, the AFE-Activists project will work on:

  • Designing and testing of a non-formal learning curriculum based on the analysis of the state-of-the-art European and global grass-roots initiatives of older people’s activism.
  • Project-based learning enabling the 65+ learners to find the most effective methods to translate the promising idea of age-friendly environment into effective action on the local level.
  • Deploying transnational learning mobilities giving the opportunity to selected participants to gain first-hand experience on age-friendly environments in The Hague (The Netherlands) and Udine (Italy).
