Methodology

Have you ever wondered if older adults hold the key to sustainable living? It’s time to rethink the narrative. As part of our study, we took an in-depth look at the experiences and aspirations of older adults in Spain, Portugal, Italy and Cyprus. We listened to their stories, their challenges and their dreams for a greener future.

What did we find? A surprising number of insights into how older adults can play a pioneering role in environmental activism. From green retirement plans to community engagement, we explored it all. But that wasn’t all. We teamed up with adult educators to create a roadmap on how to support older adults on their sustainability journey.

So what’s in our methodology? Think of it as a toolkit for changemakers. It’s packed with practical strategies to promote global awareness, encourage eco-friendly habits and promote local engagement.
