AIUTA 2015 Lublin - Poland, International Conference: "Students of the Third Age - a New Generation of Students?"
Conference on modern educational methods and activization of seniors organized by AIUTA- The International Association of Universities of The Third Age and The Lublin U3A.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the International AIUTA Conference “Students of the Third Age, a New Generation of Students?”, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join us in Lublin from 17 to 19 September 2015. After the very successful conference in Alicante in June 2015, the AIUTA conference comes for the first time to Poland. It is a big privilege for U3A Lublin, member of AIUTA for many years, to organize the conference in Lublin. It offer us the opportunity to meet and discuss modern educational methods and challenges we encounter in universities of the third age, talk about programme offers and solutions for active aging and realization of the idea of lifelong learning.
Lublin is the ninth largest city in Poland. It is the capital of the Lublin province with a population of 350 thousand. It is also the biggest academic centre in the Eastern part of Poland, during the academic year, more than 120,000 students come to town. The Lublin Province is the eastern most region not only in Poland, but also in the European Union, bordering with Ukraine and Belarus. Throughout the ages it has been a unique region in Poland, a meeting point of three religions: Judaism, Catholicism and the Orthodox Church. Lublin remains predominantly an academic centre, even though several industrial sectors are quite well developed, especially in the production of light vans, the pharmaceutical industry and food processing.
We work closely with the Scientific Committee to provide an unforgettable scientific experience as well as to offer a social program filled with of opportunities to share the beauty of our region with colleagues and friends around the world in a very familiar and warm atmosphere.
I look forward to meeting together in September 2015 in Lublin. Malgorzata Stanowska
Chair of the Organizing Committee
