The main idea of this project is to support the creation of age integrated society, help 50+ workers to get a chance for active ageing as active participants in an age-integrated society and ageing well at work, at home and in their communities. The main goal of the project is: through newly developed e-learning courses, awareness raising and dissemination activities to increase knowledge, skills, competence and understanding of the direct target groups 50+ workers, HRD managers, educators, and trainers in order to improve the position of 50+ workers in the labor market and society. Within this project we investigated the situation of 50+ workers, HRD policy implemented for this age group in companies, and education and training methods used. Based on the in 5 project partner countries (Slovakia, Cyprus, UK, Austria, Greece) findings the blended courses for 50+ workers, HRD managers and educators were developed and tested in four languages – English, Slovak, German, and Greek. With such approach we reinforced the contribution of Lifelong Learning to social cohesion, gender equality and personal fulfilment of 50+ workers, contributed to increased participation in lifelong learning by people of all ages, and supported the development of innovative ICT-based content. Project activities also contributed to creation of favorable environment for 50+ workers through its dissemination and awareness raising activities focused at the indirect target groups: public administrators, labor offices, trade unions, social services providers.
