"Learning in later life -In the context of an ageing society young and old are more and more faced with new learning needs of older adults and vice versa. Older adults- even if they are not willing to learn-are forced to cope with the changes of modern life to keep social contacts. It brings chances and challenges, but also risks and threats for young and old..
