Welcome to the GEPARD training on Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion, focusing on the intricate theme of Diversity & Age. In this unit, we will embark on a journey exploring general concepts related to three distinct age groups: children, youth, and the elderly. Our training is designed to be engaging and interactive, utilising a blend of theoretical understanding, case studies, and online videos to enhance your grasp of age-related diversity.

Begin by delving into the provided presentation, which outlines fundamental concepts concerning age diversity. The presentation covers the notion of childhood, the development of subcultures among the youth, and the shifting dynamics of the ageing process. Case studies will play a crucial role in our exploration, providing real-world scenarios to better understand the challenges and nuances faced by different age groups. Additionally, we'll leverage online videos to enrich our learning experience, offering diverse perspectives and insights into the realities of children, youth, and the elderly.

Moving forward, we will then transition to an in-depth discussion of the EU Parliament document titled "The Gender Gap in Pensions in the EU." This document sheds light on a critical aspect of age-related diversity, emphasising the disparities in pension entitlements between men and women.

Best wishes on your journey through the Diversity & Age Unit!
