Project News

Project Overview

SNAW is committed to developing an impactful online course to raise awareness about ageism in the workplace, effectively addressing this prevalent issue. The increasing longevity and demographic trends of low birth and death rates in Europe contribute to a larger population of older individuals, rendering them susceptible to age-based discrimination in professional settings. It is crucial that the growing socio-economic involvement of older adults contributes to their empowerment, steering clear of the detrimental impacts of ageism on their health, rights, and productivity.
