Public presentation of the eBook of the 3rd edition of Interactions Symposium


The 3rd Edition of the InterActions Symposium, organized by the Mission Unit “Lisbon – City of All Ages” of Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, gathers a group of academics, researchers, decision makers, entrepreneurs and other experts in the field of longevity and ageing. In 16 online thematic sessions, the challenges of promoting a society for all ages will be discussed. The main aim is to inform and encourage the sharing of good practices and the views of different departments and services of Santa Casa on this issue.

The thematic sessions will focus on a wide range of topics in the area of ageing, such as aspects related to the social representation of older people and stereotypes of ageing, and the process of transition to retirement, addressing the challenges related to ‘Ageing in Place’ in the digital age. Particular emphasis will be placed on the residential component and community space as levers to facilitate the transition from hospital to the community, with implications for policy regarding continuity of care.

Distinguished national experts in the area will be joined by international specialists who will contribute to a better understanding of the challenges we face in affirming a more equitable, cohesive and inclusive society for all ages.
