Focus theme of the festival
Focus question : Self-determination questionnaire
Of all the factors of identity, age strategies discuss the least, surprisingly taboo topic. The expertise that should define ageism in the report does not have certain criteria in between. But there is ageism - domestic and systemic. The exacerbation between people of different ages became all the more evident when, during the pandemic, older people were at risk and the virus was mostly carried by young people. And it was a conflict of responsibilities: who and whom should take care of? Our attitude to our own and other people's age is changing. It is changing so much that the WHO had to adjust the age classifications and officially extend the years of youth. Are we determined by age? Do we determine our own age? There are no adults? Live fast and live forever?
