Summary what was youth exchange about:
Europe is aging, according to the 2019 Report on Demographic Aging produced by the Working Group on Population Aging of the EU Economic Policy Committee. In four decades around two million older people will be part of the world population. On the other hand, the world in which we live is different from that in which we were born, that is, much more urbanized and with an accelerated technological advance. Consider the following, about three-quarters of the elderly population is not adapted to development, a percentage that tends to increase in the coming decades. On the other hand, we have the context of a young adult who is “trapped” in a society that devours time and the efforts derived from stifling competitiveness in some cases, and that does not lead in most cases to having time. necessary to serve senior adults and learn from their extensive experience acquired over the years and that we are surely wasting.
General objectives of the project:
