The field research in selected communities in Slovenia is successfully progressing and we are approaching our set goal to make 100 interviews with older men. So far we have made 86 interviews and also conducted 3 focus groups with representatives of local authorities and non-governmental organisations in both selected communities.
Some photos from our visit in Ajdovščina:
The implementation of the field research in Slovenian first selected community is in full swing. Students are already conducting interviews with older men. On the 24th of February the first focus group was performed in this selected community.
We have talked about the elderly people, especially men, living in this community and how the community is taking care for their elderly. Representatives from different organisations took part in this focus group as are the the representatives from local community, libraries, associations of pensioners and other interest associations.
We are very pleased that they have kindly responded to our invitation and contributed valuable information and insight into the researched community.
More than 15 Slovenian students have entered the field with old guys on Wednesday 22 March in the district community Ljubljana Bežigrad. We plan to interview more than 50 men in three weeks.
