Prof. Dr. Martina Brandt will take part in the panel discussion of the project "Nordrhein-Westfalen - hier hat Altwerden Zukunft" [North Rhine-Westphalia - there is a future for growing old] with Minister Karl-Josef Laumann on 9 December 2020. The aim is to discuss ways of promoting the participation and integration of older people in the community. The aim is not only to support a self-determined lifestyle in old age, but also to improve the health and quality of life of older people. The goal of the project is to create a map with participation offers. This is intended to make the diversity of activities in North Rhine-Westphalia visible and accessible to interested older people.
