50+ Lives: TAEN Launches Video Case Studies

As part of its European Social Fund Technical Assistance Project, TAEN has commissioned a series of videos in which older workers relate their individual experiences. The case studies focus on three key themes relating to extended working lives: Still Working, Seeking Work and Active Ageing. 

The first videos to be released feature five individual case studies of people who are still working and one which looks at extended working lives from a range of cultural perspectives. They are available on the new TAEN ESF Media Centre.
