With great pleasure we want to introduce you a little teaser of the workshop of the European Week of Active and Healthy Ageing – “Life Is For Living!” by Maria Pahlberg and Patrik Bergström.
Maria and Patrik both work for Skellefteå Municipality and strive to prevent involuntary loneliness and inspire seniors to improve their healty aging! In our preventative work we meet over 10 000 seniors each year.
To have friends and a social context is a basic human need. The pandemic has raised the need to work across community and health care borders to reduce involuntary loneliness. Join an interactive session that takes a population based approach to how we can beat involuntary loneliness.
“We will showcase our loneliness network, working to prevent loneliness and promote social well- being. Local examples of cross-sectional collaboration will be presented. Join the movement that beats involuntary loneliness!”
Involuntary loneliness is a national concern. To prevent involuntary loneliness a collaboration between as many societal functions as possible is needed. The aim is to provide tools for the general public and social actors as a bridge between research and application to support social connectedness this workshop aims to present trials and tribulations regarding work to prevent loneliness and then let the participant discuss and share their experience and good ideas using the “king for a day” approach, were the participant together will get to visualize a new city without involuntary loneliness using diffrent tools and experiences.
