SASSI Working On – Situation on career guidance for 50+

Each partner carried out national research in order to identify current practice in terms of providing career guidance and career management for 50+ employees.
Research shows that in the partner countries there are no specific advisory or counselling programmes for older people. This means that this group uses the systems that are generally available for adults of all age groups. In contrast, most countries have put in place policies wich aim to support longer working lives.
The importance of the increasing retirement age does not go unnoticed. Companies that do not yet perceive this issue as important undoubtedly will in the near future.

No Alternative Facts – New project starts now

The EU-Team is excited about the start of a new 2-year project tackling intentional misinformation in digital technologies through critical thinking skills and media literacy.

Young people today are growing up in a globalised world and are processing information from a wider variety of sources than ever before. They need the critical literacy skills to navigate the potential pitfalls when consuming news, particularly when using online sources and social media. Media literacy is crucial for sustaining democracy by knowing which information sources to trust and which media are trustworthy.

This is where the project comes in – we want to develop tools to support trainers and tutors working with (disadvantaged) young adults, in order to increase their media literacy, critical thinking and digital competences with the aim to raise their awareness of the phenomenon and to prepare them to take more activiely part in decision making processes and, last but not least, in a democracy.
