Fundación Caja Navarra viene desarrollando un ambicioso e innovador trabajo para mejorar sus Centros de mayores, Centros Convive. Se ha propuesto que sean espacios desde donde las personas mayores puedan construir sus proyectos de vida y encuentren respuesta a sus necesidades. Lugares que, además, contribuyan a la comunidad de la que forman parte y sean espacios para la participación y el desarrollo personal. Esta guía es fruto del trabajo desarrollado a través de dos experiencias piloto entre los años 2019 y el 2022.
El objetivo de la misma es facilitar la transformación del modelo de Centros Convive, partiendo de los intereses y necesidades de las personas que componen los Centros (personas usuarias, asociaciones de mayores, profesionales) y de la colaboración con su entorno próximo (familiares, otras asociaciones del barrio, otras entidades y servicios…). En otras palabras, que las mejoras sean impulsadas por los propios protagonistas de los centros, y en interacción con la comunidad.
Este material busca servir de inspiración a todas aquellas personas que participan de un centro social de mayores y tengan la necesidad de cambio y avance, así como a cualquier persona en general con interés en experiencias participativas y comunitarias de proximidad.

In its 2023 edition of the Barometer, AGE analyses the situation of older people in the labour market and attempts to answer the following question “How to empower older people on the labour market so they can lead sustainable and quality working lives?”.
On the basis of data collected by AGE members and documentary research, a report on 19 countries has been drawn up (see below for links to the country sheets): Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
Through country-by-country assessments, we have highlighted commonalities and divergences between Member States and set out AGE’s positions on three policy areas with an intersectional perspective: support for older people in the labour market, tackling ageism in the workplace and workplaces for all ages.

Studies on older adults’ civic engagement have been dominated by a win-win narrative, which assumes that the activity is beneficial both for the individuals involved and for communities. However, civic engagement may also be a source of negative experiences. The aim of this study was to understand these experiences in greater depth through an analysis of older Spanish activists’ narratives of negative episodes of political participation. We also aimed to contribute to the methodological literature on narrative research by highlighting the strengths of analysing not just the content but also the structure of older people’s stories. Life story interviews were carried out with 40 members of Spanish political organisations aged between 65 and 86 years old. As part of the interview, they were invited to narrate a negative event related to their stories of political participation. Answers were analysed both for their content (using thematic analysis) and for their structure (using Christopher Booker’s plot typology). Participants recounted many negative experiences of political participation, which challenged the win-win master cultural narrative around civic engagement. These stories, which often reflected Booker’s plots of ‘tragedy’, ‘overcoming the monster’, ‘the quest’, and ‘redemption’, recorded political defeats, conflicts with other members in the organisation, feelings of loneliness associated with engagement, and undesired consequences for relatives and friends. The results highlight the importance of providing a more nuanced understanding of what it means to be politically engaged in later life. This understanding would integrate the positive aspects assumed by the master win-win narrative with others that clearly challenge its assumptions.

The use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for information-seeking, social contact and leisure activities is increasing in adults and older people. However, little is known about adults and older people who are already actively using ICTs to write a blog. The aim of this paper is to describe the benefits adults and older people gain from having a blog. Twenty-three older adult bloggers (aged 60–83 years; most of them with college degrees and retired) from Spain who, at the time of the study had an active blog were interviewed. A thematic analysis identified four different benefits related to blogging: (1) a general sense of satisfaction from producing the blog; (2) relational benefits; (3) cognitive benefits; and (4) identity benefits. Results showed that adults and older people experienced a variety of benefits that broadens the distinction between personal and social benefits found in previous research. Blogging in later life challenges the traditional passive/consumer and online user experience view of adults and older people and seems to be a good example of proactive participation through websites.
