About the project
ActivAge – Supporting ageing adults to stay active is a project funded by Erasmus+ under the KA204 – Strategic Partnerships for adult education, coordinated by International Telematic University UNINETTUNO.
ActivAge is aimed at over-65-year-old people who are still active and healthy, and proposes a pro-active approach aimed at preventing psycho-physical decay and social exclusion and at ensuring general wellbeing. The digital technologies will represent the means to access a global platform that will serve as a tool for offering educational contents as well as a customized guide and orientation service that will give specific recommendations and activity and learning paths.
The strategic partnership will initially develop a research work aimed at exploring the existing initiatives and good practices in the field of active ageing in the three target countries (Italy, France and Slovenia) as well as at international level. Starting from the study of the existing literature and resources as well as through interviews and surveys aimed at end users and to target stakeholders, a report will be prepared, both in a .PDF and online format, that will allow to:
- thoroughly understand the background and needs of the target group;
- map the actors on the field, the existing tools and resources and define the effectiveness.
The sector being considered are mainly those of reference for the 6 project partners: sports, health, lifelong learning, social relationships, healthy behavior models.
The research work will be used as a frame of reference for developing an online self-assessment tool that will allow an analytical profiling of the final users and will suggest them a customized path to keep fit from a physical and mental viewpoint. This maintenance path will include also resources made available through a “knowledge center”, developed by the project itself. This “knowledge center” will include free and open educational (videolessons and other more-in-depth study materials included) and information/reference resources, also including a geolocalized database of the activities and resources made available to over-65-year old people.
