Active ageing: keep learning, keep working

Cedefop Press release

Cedefop is at present carrying out extensive work on how older workers learn, particularly on the neglected issue of how to retrain and retain workers nearing retirement age – and what motivates people to keep working past it. An international workshop on ‘Working at old age – Emerging theories and empirical perspectives on ageing and work’ is to be held at Cedefop, Thessaloniki, on 29-30 September 2008.

By organising this workshop, Cedefop aims to highlight research on:

- The relationship between work performance and age
- Insights from adult learning theories on ageing and work
- Individual and environmental factors enabling longer working lives
- and to develop policy recommendations.
