Via its Platform for the Area about Growing Old, the Lisbon Social Network is organiisng the 1
st Congress of the Lisbon Social Network on the topic of "Growing Old, from Social Isolation to participation and Cohesion", which will take place on the 29th and 30th of January, 2015, at the Lisboa School of Economics and Management (ISEG ULisboa).
During these two days, as well as both national and International researchers, various organisations that work with the elderly will share with us practices and methodologies for dealing with the problem of the social isolation of the elderly.
The object of the Congress is to promote as wider debate as possible about the problem of the social isolation of the elderly, in an attempt to raise the awareness of this topic, with the aim of obtaining suggestions for the improvement of social support for this area.
The other major topic addressed by this Congress is getting to know about those strategies which promote the involvement of the elderly in an ever-increasingly inclusive society.
One item from the programme deserves highlighting, and that is the Opening Conference on "Strategy 2020 and Policies for Growing Old", as well as the thematic workshops and the exhibition of posters/project cartazes from this area.
