According to WHO, Active Ageing (AA) is “the process of optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age” and community participation is one of its more fundamental components, along with volunteering, social connections and intimate relations. Elder Persons (EPs) who retire from work can remain active contributors to their families, peers and communities. To this use comes Sharing Economy which refers to economic and social systems that enable shared access to goods, services, data and talent as opposed to ownership. More particular, Not-for-Profit Sharing Economy (NFPSE) is a main concept of the project, as it provides opportunities of exchange of services or resources without a remuneration and thus everyone who wants to offer to the community can participate no matter their age or background.
Therefore, the project “COLABOR-ACTIVE: Development of a training program for enhancing Active Ageing through Not-For-Profit Sharing Economy” is launched with the main objective of increasing the competences (attitudes, skills, knowledge) of EPs and their Communities, about how to enhance AA through NFPSE through an innovative training program.
