This face-to-face conference will try to define basic concepts such as ageism and micro-ageism and to delve into the existence of certain attitudes that, by action or omission, consciously or unconsciously, have been incorporated into the society in which we live and that perpetuate ageism.

During the day there will be the opinion and the protagonism of both recognized experts in the field, as well as older people who will tell in first person their vision and experience.

Let's talk about ageism

In recent years we have heard a lot about the term "ageism", a concept that, as the word itself indicates, refers to a type of discrimination based on age. Currently considered one of the most widespread forms of discrimination, along with racism and sexism, it is still largely unknown to society in general. Given the topicality and growing interest that seems to generate this issue, from the Lugaritz housing construction team we have decided to organize a talk in which we will have Elena del Barrio, co-director of Matia Institute and expert on the subject.
