University for Third Age

 

The Universtiy of Third Age began in 1970 in France and nowadays

it has been expanded globally.

People Behind began this initative in Athens in early 2020, offering to

people 65+ a variety of workshops and activities designed speciafically

for this age group.

After Covid-19 we created the e-learning platform,

e-Universtity for Third Age, where

our beneficiries follow weekly workshops, do their homework,

express ideas and thoughts and build relationships.

To access the e-learning platform (version only in Greek)

 

Currently the courses are:

History, Greek Philosophy, Computers, English language,

Ancient Tragedy & Literature.

Supported by: TIMA Charitable Foundation & Ministry of Culture

Expression Lab 65+

These excerises help to improve memory
as well as mental and physical health of the beneficiaries.
