Pandemics: Do They Change How We Address Age and Ageing? Positive Ageing Week 2020

Published 25/09/2020

SHARE THIS

As we learn to live with, and recover from, the impact of COVID-19, we have an opportunity to address inequalities experienced by older people, value their role in society, and ensure that the diversity of their voices is heard, informing decisions that affect them. Although events and activities will take place in limited numbers or virtually due to social gathering restrictions, we are hopeful that people of all ages across Ireland will take this opportunity to reflect on these themes within their families, communities, and workplaces. 

Organising an Event?

Age Action encourages organisers of events to register them on the dedicated PAW webiste www.positiveageingweek.com

You can download posters to advertise your event here.

As a result of the current public health measures it will not be possible to hold public events during Positive Ageing Week 2020.  Any events will be held virtually.  Age Action realises that not everyone has access to technology, or the broadband needed to support such virtual gatherings but we would hope that those who have can engage with some/all of the events will do so during the week.

You can find out what is happening in your area here

If you want to get in touch with an idea for an event or to let us know about your event please contact: paw@ageaction.ie
