On 20 July, Nagusi Intelligence Center, in collaboration with Bilbao Ekintza, is holding a new thematic talk, entitled: "The importance of activity and physical exercise among older people"

We’re changing the setting but maintaining the goal of continuing to promote the Silver sphere through the vision of three different perspectives: the expert, provided by the Ageing On Group of the UPV/EHU, the public, with the Department of Social Action of Bilbao City Council presenting Aukeragune, and finally the entrepreneurial, with Mugikon and Ikaika Training.

After the break, there will be a working session with all the attendees.
