The Silbernetz Congress "Network against loneliness in old age"

for the constitution of a network against loneliness in old age took place online on November 12/13, 2020. The ambitious program of workshops, breakout groups and high-level panel discussions aimed to engage policy makers and academia more on this topic and develop a platform for "Loneliness in Old Age". With the participation of German Health Minister Spahn and EU Vice President Suica, the problems and challenges were discussed, especially in times of a pandemic. Afterwards, workshops were held to develop solution approaches for the establishment of a network but also very concrete ideas for thematic work.
