Opportunities for Action

Life Long Learning

Positive Ageing in London is holding a free, half-day conference focusing on life long learning, at which expert speakers will be talking about life long learning and older people, including experiences of the U3A, over 60’s wishing to become post graduates, training and educational opportunities for both employed, unemployed and retired older people.

There will be focus group discussions, after which, PAiL will draw up recommendations to present to the Mayor and government officials. We will focus specifically on skills and education strategies and how they link to employment, life long learning and the benefits that learning brings to all ages.

  • Date and time: Wednesday 23 May 10:30 – 15:30
  • Venue: 336 Brixton Road, London SW9 7AA

Ageism – the last taboo?

Despite being one of the nine protected characteristics under the UK Equality Act 2010, age is still something that appears to be socially acceptable to discriminate against: Product marketing, the fashion and retail industry, representations in media and even the language that we use on a daily basis are all examples of areas where this is still blatantly prevalent.
The Centre for Aging Better invites you to join an event to discuss how ageing is still a taboo in our society and debate how we can take steps to collectively change this.

  • Date and Time: Wed 2 May 2018 08:30 – 10:30
  • Venue: The King’s Fund, 11-13 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0AN
