Based on the 3day conference 'Age & wellbeing' students will learn about age in 3 different contexts:
+ Age & poverty
+ Age & sexual health
+ Age & plan for your own care time in exchange to voluntarily offering care time for others (Verein Zeitpolster)

Students will relate these inputs to their chosen branch of 'social management' and work on a presentation for the conference participants.

The grade relevant tasks for this course part (1 SWS) consist of creating a poster (50%) and a related presentation (50%).
