Retirement learning

SCB provides special events and courses for more senior adults who are retired, semi-retired or about to retire. Areas of Environment, Energy, Climate, Health and Safety are of interest to everyone. For example why is the electricity bill so expensive? How to use a health app and stay “forever young”? What does climate change mean to us and our grandchildren? Why do we care about Russian gas imports? Is forest protection more important than my property rights?

Once a month a seminar or event (e.g. event in Bruges, site visit, etc.) will be organized by an expert, accompanied by drinks and appetizers. When becoming an SCB member, you will be able to develop an interesting and lifelong learning network. Members can also suggest or develop courses in collaboration of SCB. The following topics are to be scheduled in 2017 – SCB holds the right to update or amend the below schedule:
