Next interview — January 25th 2016 / Paulina Ballbè. Director of the Postgraduate Programme in Active Ageing at the UPF

“It would be intelligent to consider how we would like to live when we get older, and to work to design an inclusive and accessible society”

A lawyer specialising in community law, through her experience in the international sphere and in the academic world Paulina Ballbè has acquired a broad view of the demographic changes that will mark the evolution of our society. Despite recognising some attempts by the public powers – such as the communication actions promoted by the Welfare and Family Department’s Office for Active Elderly People during the European Active Ageing Year in 2012 — she highlights raising awareness and consciousness as the top challenges in advancing towards the social model of diversity.
