Louth EU_SHAFE Inter-regional Meeting
Interreg Europe

The Louth County Council EU_SHAFE partner in conjunction with the Technological University Dublin will host an interregional meeting focussed on social participation and Smart Healthy Age Friendly Environments on 27th May 2021 at 9:00 am IST (10:00 am CEST). The keystone of the webinar will be a panel discussion on “How do we advance social participation through technology”?, featuring panellists from the technological sector, NGOs and Local Government.  

Good Practices in social participation from Ireland and the other EU_SHAFE European partners will also feature as part of the programme highlighting the good work already being carried out on the ground. The third element of the webinar will focus on an analysis of social participation policies across the partner regions and a look at the next Regional Operational Programme in Ireland.

The webinar will be both interesting and informative and will bring learned experience of the EU_SHAFE project to anyone interested in Smart Healthy Age Friendly Environments and in the improvement of older people’s lives.
