Wednesday, September 2nd (Session E2) - Dismantling Ageism~Old School Style!

Session E2

By now most people have heard of ageism, but few understand how dangerous it is to our health and well-being.  Research shows that negative views about our own aging can subtract 7 1/2 years from our lives.  To change our thinking, we need to truly see and address ageism as it plays out in all aspects of our lives.  Join us and this emerging global movement as we envision a new future where we dismantle ageism.  Participants will have a chance to submit questions in advance and guides will discuss.  Additional resources and tools will be shared.

1. Identify examples of anti-ageism activism here and abroad.
2. Experience an actual Dismantling Ageism Workshop.
3. Identify additional resources to be used with the Workshop or as stand-alone items to help combat Ageism.
