At the end of the year, SHINE 2Europe got a present, seeing the Conference article “Smart against ageism: an overview of age discrimination in Portugal” published on the Special Issue of the Hungarian Gerontology Scientific Journal!
“Negative stereotypes, prejudices and discrimination on the ground of age, known as “ageism” have been shown to cause cardiovascular stress, lowered levels of self-efficacy and decreased productivity. Across the EU, policies and practices still reflect ageist prejudices and deprioritise, disregard, or even exclude older adults in different ways.Within the scope of the SAA project (Smart Against Ageism)a short study was developed on the idea of discrimination concerning age within the scope of Portuguese society, with the main aims of reflecting on public policies and legislation; identifying good practices and possible responses to ageism; describing the many organisations at the national, regional, and local levels that are working against stereotypes with the aim to create more inclusive environments which are suited to all generations”.
This work was developed by Carina Dantas, Juliana Louceiro and Natália Machado, under the project SAA (https://saa-game.eu/)
