Aligned with the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing and the IFA 16th Global Conference on Ageing (concerning Digital Technologies in particular), the growing global trends of an ageing population and digitalization demand an interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral collaborative strategy within the colloquy of healthy ageing and technology.
For this upcoming session, we are bringing together two organizations that are focused on improving the lives of older people and addressing the gaps in inequality. Age Action is Ireland's leading advocacy organization for older people and ageing - informing and influencing policy to support older people to age in place and combat digital exclusion. U3A Ireland explores learning opportunities as a continual process for individuals with a wide and diverse range of interests, a high level of curiosity and a commitment to lifelong learning. Therefore, please join us in an exclusive conversation with Ms. Eileen Sweeney, member of the Steering Group at U3A Ireland (Sutton Baldoyle), and Ms. Celine Clarke, Head of Advocacy and Public Affairs at Age Action, on "Lifelong Learning in the Healthy Ageing Discourse."
