Europe faces a real problem: an ageing population. One of the major challenges of the twenty-first century will be to meet the increased demand for health care. Health systems will have to adapt to the needs of an ageing population, while ensuring their sustainability in a society where the labor force is decreasing. The main objective was to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for older Europeans.

The community recommendations to support politics and actions were held guaranteeing a proactive and comprehensive approach to the problem of ageing people. It aims not only to extend the working life of older workers, but also to keep older people active. 2012 "European Year of Active Ageing". Therefore, the development of specific courses and training for old people is our main challenge within the project : to acquire new skills through formal, non formal or informal learning; to have access to education and training to develop one’s potential; to blossom and to interact in society through prevention.
