14th Festival of Third Age
The City of Ljubljana has been a part of the Festival of Third Age this year as well.
The largest event of the kind in Europe took place between 29 September and 1 October 2014 at the Culture and Congress Centre Cankarjev Dom in Ljubljana.
It was in the exhibition space at the 1st foyer of the Centre that the City of Ljubljana and its public companies and institution have presented themselves. The visitors to the Festival of Third Age could attend language, computing, art and other creative workshops; sports and dance activities; lectures on the Ljubljana Public Transport service for the elderly and receive answers to the questions on the residential solutions for the elderly. Among others, the rural suburban Ljubljana has also presented itself, while the Ljubljana Health Centre, the Ljubljana Pharmacies and the Home Care Institute held their independent presentations.
Beside the presentation at the Cankarjev Dom Centre, the City of Ljubljana organised the accompanying programme, rich in content and free-of-charge. The Festival visitors could attend guided tours of the city and the Ljubljana Castle; view certain performances, exhibitions and films, developed by Ljubljana's public institutions in the field of culture; and the attend viewing of apartments with provided care.
The Festival's slogan was We Are All One Generation! to emphasise it is the mutual effort of every generation, our connection and dependency that creates society.
