In breve

According to data from United Nations the number of persons aged 60 years and over is expected to be more than double by 2050 and to more than triple by 2100, rising from 962 million globally in 2017 to 2.1 billion in 2050 and 3.1 billion in 2100. In a society where quite each country in the world is experiencing growth in the number and proportion of older persons in their population active ageing became a new challenge. Life long learning and education in third age play an important role in active ageing. Education in later life can be part of active ageing, it can become a new beginning and finally can be perceived as a way of including older people in social life. Universities of the Third Age have an important role in helping the elderly to enhance their potential in order to get an individual satisfaction, to improve the quality of life and to expand the social network. This book makes an analysis of the state of the art of Third Age Education before the start in 2015 of European tempus project “Center for Third Age Education”. The aim was to examine what already exists in the field of Third Age Education in participating countries Azerbaijan, Russian Federation, and Ukraine and then to look at how EU and existing national experience can be used to improve Centres for Third Age Education.
