To a Caring and Sustainable Society

Broadcast date: 1 October 2021, 11:00 -12:00

The final podium of the second year of the care support center project examines the question, which discourses do we as a society have with regard to dealing with aging and care? Often the focus is on the deficits that come with the years of life. But what makes aging worth living despite limitations and what needs do people need care? And what about those who care? It's about nothing less than dignified aging and appreciation!

Which strategies are necessary to rethink aging and care that lead to a caring society? We want to show the next steps for the development of a care culture, close to people, in all situations, in communities as well as in urban areas.
