Uribe Kosta

As we start 2024 we would like to wish you a Happy New Year from the Nagusi Intelligence Center!

The new year will bring new themes, but we will be maintaining our usual vision of tackling issues related to the Silver Economy. On 25 January, from 9:30 to 12:00, we will be organising a talk on: Volunteering by/for older people to combat loneliness.

This will involve the participation of Dr. Lidia Gimena Dominguez, assistant professor at the University of Extremadura and co-author of Senior volunteering in a pandemic: impact on the social participation of elderly people. And this time, we have decided to make a slight change to the traditional format, organising a round table with the participation of Danel Alberdi, coordinator of Bizkaia Gara, an agency for volunteering and community work in Bizkaia, Alberto Cabanes, CEO and Founder of Adopta un Abuelo (“Adopt a Grandparent”), Nagore Fernandez from the Innovation Department of the OSI Barrualde-Galdakao, and Txema Delgado, volunteer and member of the Board of Directors of Nagusilan.

Afterwards, as usual, we will carry out an activity.

We look forward to seeing you.
