SHINE 2Europe presented the DESIRE and SAA projects in Porto

Juliana Louceiro, from SHINE 2Europe presented the DESIRE project at the conference Let’s talk about ageing that took place in Porto, Portugal. On the 11th and 12th November nearly a hundred researchers, professionals and students got together to discuss themes related to ageing on a hybrid format event. The aim was to share knowledge and good practices that are being implemented in the field.

Juliana’s presentation was part of the panel “Ageing in the Context of Cities”, and this is why DESIRE was presented as an example of what can be done in order to make cities and communities more inclusive for all citizens. She also presented SAA | Smart Against Ageism, an Erasmus + project in which SHINE is a partner and that aims to raise awareness about discrimination based on age, that is ageism.

It was a fruitful sharing space, where participants could learn more about what the DESIRE partners have done until now, and what are the next steps, namely finalising the project’s learning platform!
