Life is about change and continuity. We experience ourselves and our surroundings differently throughout life. For most people, later life is often characterized by major transitions, moving towards frailty and multiple losses – but it may also be a part of life with more time to engage in preferred activities, explore new possibilities, and to come to terms and cope with new challenges. The corona pandemic proved to be a challenge to the world beyond imagination, particularly to frail and vulnerable people and societies. However, it has also given us valuable new insights and reminded us of the values in life.
On behalf of the organizers, we invite professionals, scholars, policy makers, and companies to explore questions of change and continuity in the perspective of ageing and later life. Plenary lectures, symposia, oral sessions, posters, and exhibitions will reflect themes from a multitude of gerontological and geriatric topics, particularly:
Digitisation and technology – Housing, generations and mobility – Lifestyle, engagement and transition – Education and competences in ageing societies – Morbidity, medical treatment and ageing processes – A good life and a good death.
We welcome presentations and discussions to address perspectives that have major impact on societies and future generations: Citizen perspective, Ethnicity, Inequality, Sustainability and ecology, The coronavirus pandemic and lockdown.
