Symposium Echo der Generationen
In the Symposium Echo of Generations results of the project of the same title are combined with international and well-known research work and theories. Relations between the young and the oldest old are characterized by mutual understanding, symmetry and bonding, whereby new and until now unexpected perspectives are possible, opening doors between generations. Curiosity and attraction between the young and the very old not only aim at historical experiences, but at the persons themselves. In the panel discussion prospective tasks of a society for all ages are discussed. In such a society young and old can successively actualize their selves reciprocally.
