Mihaela Zamfir, Lecturer PhD Architect (Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism, Bucharest, Romania) and Communication Manager INDEED Project talked today about the importance of age-friendly, dementia-friendly built environment together with the senior students from U3A Galați, the only 3rd Age University from Romania, managed by Prof. Violeta Puşcaşu, Vice-Dean at Faculty of Law, University Down Danube. She presented INDEED Project, highlighting the Danube region countries involved in the project. 

At the end of this experience, Mihaela Zamfir share with us her thoughts:

ʺWrong to believe that enthusiasm disappears as we get older ... Today I have had an extraordinary experience, I have positively charged myself with the senior students of the University of the Third Age, U3A, Galati. Although I have been working for 16 years in higher education, I recognize that I have not had so much interaction from my young students. Senior students are knowledgeable, but at the same time have shared knowledge, fine intellectuals with a life experience and with great quality humor. They have a highly responsible attitude, outgoing and very optimistic.ʺ
