Invitation to Contribute to Special Issue “Active Ageing and Educational Gerontology” of International Journal of Population Studies [IJPS]
The journal 'International Journal of Population Studies' (ISSN 2424-8150 (P) / 2424-8606 (O)) is currently running a Special Issue "Active Ageing and Educational Gerontology". Prof. Marvin Formosa and Hany Hachem are serving as guest editors. Based on your expertise in this field, we think that you could make an excellent contribution.

The World Health Organization designed educational gerontology as the foundation that supports the three key pillars of active ageing - namely, health, social participation and income security. Lifelong learning opportunities in later life enable older persons to age successfully, and remain socially relevant and engaged in society. The integration of lifelong learning into active ageing discourse functions to safeguard the right of persons to age positively since the potential role that learning might play in promoting quality of life in old age has long been recognised by academics and policy makers alike.
