The demographic structure of the European population is changing rapidly, and the United Nations already considers the aging of the population as one of the most significant social transformations of the 21st century.
All European countries show this trend, and Eurostat predicts that by the year 2100 one in three 3 Europeans will be over 65 years of age.
In this context, it is necessary to rethink and recognize the role of people over 50 years of age in society, promoting active aging and valuing their potential to contribute to the development and improvement of their environments.
The Local Community Leaders project was born with the aim of promoting and encouraging the improvement of the training of adults so that, through mentoring, they become local references and contribute to the development of their communities.
Since October 2019, and over 24 months, we have been working to develop resources and tools to sensitize, guide and train anyone over 50 years of age interested in playing an active role and promoting the development of their respective communities.
Join us in this initiative, and contact us if you want to share your experience as a local facilitator.
