Connecting minds across the ages.
23 November 2021, 09.00 – 13.00 CET online
Side event of the NDPHS Partnership Annual Conference
Across the globe people are living longer than ever before. In the Northern Dimension area, in a matter of less than 30 years, the life expectancy at birth has increased on average by six years and is 78.6 years as of 2018. A longer life is an opportunity for enjoying more experiences, for trying out diverse career paths and for making more contributions to society.
Are we making the most of our additional years? Are we able and empowered to make the most of our lives, throughout our lives? And if not – why? Together with policy makers and civil society representatives from across the region, we will discuss and seek solutions.
We will organize the debate around two central themes with guest panels of invited experts for each of them:
- Fighting ageism: transforming public attitudes and addressing ageism in healthcare and at the workplace.
- Connecting ages: promoting intergenerational contacts and inclusivity of older people in service design and policymaking.
The 12th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region will take place from 27 September to 1 October 2021.
This year the Annual Forum will focus on green recovery and will invite the participants to REVITALISE the Strategy, to RECOVER after COVID-19 together and to RECHARGE for greener and more resilient Baltic Sea Region.

Arts and Culture for a Better and Healthier Life
The project “The Art of Staying Healthy” aims to develop collaboration between the arts and health sectors and to pilot arts interventions on the health and well-being of people and communities in the Northern Dimension area.
In the Open Call, we invited organisations to submit ideas that explore the possibilities of integrating arts and cultural activities into the provision of health and social care services.
The successful applicants will be offered workshops and mentoring to develop their ideas and will receive a grant to pilot the methodologies and implement project activities.
“The Art of Staying Healthy” is a joint project between the Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture, the NDPHS and EU National Institutes for Culture, supported by the Arts Promotion Centre Finland. The project is co-funded by the European Union.
