This activity aims at promoting discussion, in groups, among Master and PhD students, gathering the 5 EUGLOH partners on innovative solutions for societal issues, such as Ageing, Climate Change and Citizenship, in line with the 2030 agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals.

During this 3-day online workshop, Master and PhD students will be able to discuss and share creative ideas and methodologies, and stimulate innovation, in relation to the interconnections of these topics and their relevance to the response to present economic, social and environmental challenges.
