About care work and how social awareness can be strengthened in order to place it at the center of our lives.

The care base was live on air all night on the occasion of the international day of care and stayed awake together with the nursing staff.

Zeitpolster - Der Podcast fürs clevere ÄLTERWERDEN

Sociologist Klaus Wegleitner is active both in the academic environment and in practice in the fields of age and care. He worked in the hospice/palliative care sector, and now he is is a researcher at the Center for Interdisciplinary Aging and Care Research (University of Graz) and is the chairman of the "Sorgenetz" association in Vienna.

In this conversation, he explains what the term "Caring Community" means, and what it takes for civil society and the political framework to support our lives in the best possible way in the various phases of life.

Using the “Achtsamer 8.” initiative in the 8th district in Vienna, he explains how projects, courses and places can be created that are beneficial for seniors. What is important when you want to involve people in initiatives? How do local conditions affect society's sense of responsibility/initiative?
