Older people who actively contribute, and are integrated into society, have a higher quality of life and have longer and healthier lives. Furthermore, learning and social participation in later life are crucial for one’s self-esteem, mental agility, and the demands one feels up to. We are convinced that everybody has something to contribute to his or her networks and communities – regardless of age. It is just a matter of being given the opportunity to do so. Within the invisible talents project we therefore aim to support the participation of older and very old people and to make their talents visible.
