Senior conversations - transitioning from working to retirement

When we’re transitioning from working to retirement, many questions naturally arise: “What should the rest of my life consist of?” and “What should give my life meaning?”

Existential conversations for seniors transitioning into retirement is a project involving Red Cross Copenhagen, University College Copenhagen (Københavns Professionshøjskole), and the Municipality of Copenhagen. It aims to explore how group discussions can provide support during this transition. This program is for residents of the Municipality of Copenhagen, and we recommend that you participate no later than two years after leaving the workforce.

The program begins with an individual interview, followed by six group meetings. Lastly, there will be an individual interview. The meetings focus on life strategies, values, and the art of living. To prepare for each meeting, there will be small reflection tasks. The interviews will last for approximately 30 minutes, and group meetings will be 2 hours long, including a break.

We offer both in-person and online sessions. The next program will be online, starting in August 2023, with the following meeting dates:

August 21, August 28, September 4, September 11, September 19, and September 26. All meetings will take place from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.

The August program starts with an individual interview on August 14 or August 15. The final interview will be held on October 12 or October 13.
