This project was prepared under the leadership of VsI "Saules stygos" from Lithuania, in cooperation with Turkey, the Netherlands, Italy and Poland.
According to Eurostat data, more than 50 million people in the EU have more than one chronic disease, and this number will increase significantly in the near future. This increase constitutes 20% of the GDP of health care expenditures. For this reason, it is essential to reach out to project partner countries and across Europe through the Erasmus+ project.
The project aims to reach multimorbid elderly people who have fewer opportunities and improve their living standards. It aims to support older people living in rural and remote areas or people over 65 who experience any potential discrimination on the basis of age. This project will help overcome the barriers faced by this group in accessing program opportunities, as well as the creation of inclusive environments that promote equality and equity and respond to the needs of the broader society. In the context of the chosen theme, this project aims to support local learning environments, social inclusion, and civic engagement through partners.
PABSEM will enable multi-morbid individuals over 65 to benefit from lifelong learning opportunities using developing technologies. The PABSEM project encourages local learning centers, civil society, and university research centers to work together to enable and motivate adults to learn life skills and key competencies.
