Abstract

Zwei Themen finden sich in den letzten Jahren verstärkt in der gesellschaftlichen Diskussion wieder: zum einen der demographische Wandel und die so genannte ‚Überalterung’ europäischer Gesellschaften, zum anderen ehrenamtliches Engagement und hier insbesondere der Beitrag, den ältere BürgerInnen leisten können. Nicht zuletzt begünstigt durch anhaltende Reformdiskussionen werden ältere Menschen oftmals als Belastung für die Gesellschaft dargestellt, da sie aufgrund von Rentenansprüchen und Pflegebedürftigkeit viel Geld kosten. Durch die gestiegene Lebenserwartung und die gute Gesundheitslage vieler Älterer ergibt sich hingegen ein Potential an aktiven BürgerInnen, die sich für andere Menschen und die Gesellschaft engagieren und somit informelle Arbeit leisten.
