Die alternde Gesellschaft - Inclusion, aging and care as a social challenge
The project deals with demographic change and its impact on society (e.g., health, care, inclusion and social cohabitation). Conceptualized as a Service-Learning project, social-scientific methods such as surveys, interviews, participatory observations should be applied in context. At the same time social commitment will be fostered by solving regional, concrete challenges. Researchers of the university, social enterprises and civil society stakeholders work on suitable solutions to meet specific needs.
Understand: The participants of this project understand the impact of demographic change on care and inclusive work.
Reflect: Chances and risks, as well as specific challenges that go hand in hand with these developments, are reflected.
Transfer: Researchers apply specific research methods und participate in co-creation workshops.
Engagement: Students support voluntary projects and regional social enterprises; they participate in processes of social innovation and are committed to find solutions for societal challenges.
It is planned to conduct a final CIVIS Open Lab workshop open to all students of CIVIS partner universities. Thereby the results of this project will be discussed commonly, in the context of the major challenges of the 21st century.
