We face a number of challenges across Europe in relation to older people’s learning: resources, changing working lives; ageing populations; insufficient social and health care; intergenerational tensions (whether real or manufactured), to name but a few. 

Seeking to build on the themes of previous ELOA conferences and to bring a creative approach to older people’s learning, this conference will address some familiar themes in new ways and shed light on some of the issues by looking at them from different perspectives. Can we change our perceptions and bring a creative approach to our work at the same time as using our work to support changing practices and outcomes for learning in communities and across society?

Across three days with key note speakers, papers presented and workshops given the conference aims to address the following themes: 

  • Access to learning for older people
  • Cultural dimensions of older people’s learning
  • Equality and diversity of older people’s learning
  • Community learning
  • The role of adult educators and their work with older learners and Older people learning in the cultural sector
