Mid term meeting alicante

Last 20th November 2015 the conference of mid-term dissemination of the results and progress of the BALL project took place in Alicante. The Director of the Permanent University and Coordinator of the BALL Project, Concha Bru, presented the project to the attendees, as well as the materials implemented during the research process carried out throughout the first year.

On 27th November 2015 a conference entitled: “Add Life to Age- Go Actively into Retirement” was organized by the Lublin University of the Third Age  within the frames of the BALL Erasmus+ Project. Preparation to retirement must be accompanied, on the one hand, by social support, and on the other hand, by a look into one’s self, as everyone has the right and obligation to decide about the later part of life. Research carried out during the first year of the  BALL project  provided interesting information on the  readiness of individuals to prepare to retirement and to lead an active life. A sociologist, Monika Adamczyk, Ph.D., elaborated on the  awareness of this problem in Polish society in the light of the research conducted during the BALL mapping and survey. The participants of the conference were handed a book she wrote on those issues  “Go Actively into Retirement”.
