Thanks to contacts established during the INTERFASOL meetings, a group of members of the Working Group 4, dedicated to informing key stakeholders, have launched a policy implementation and research oriented cooperation. In particular, Roberto Giua and Laura Dryjanska have visited George (Gino) Pavia and his team from the Active Ageing and Community Care Directorate at the Ministry for the Family and Social Solidarity. The meeting constituted an occasion to discuss the recently published book entitled “Solidarieta’ Intergenerazionale: Universo Argento” (Italian for “Intergenerational solidarity: Silver Universe”) and the plans to propose another volume on this topic, this time in English.
Moreover, the participants have also discussed the proposal to gather information from key stakeholders such as associations of families of persons suffering from neurodegenerative diseases, in both Malta and Italy. An idea of distributing a survey in these countries has emerged and will be further explored and pursued.
