Ageism can have a profound impact on our job prospects, confidence, health, quality of life and control over life decisions. It can limit us from participating in our communities as full citizens, and has proven impacts on our physical health and longevity.
Meet Dr Mike Rungie, member of the EveryAGE Counts coalition steering group. Mike is involved with the Global Centre for Modern Ageing and a graduate of the Modern Elder Academy. We chat to him about ageism towards older people in the areas of growth and learning.Read More
Negative attitudes and beliefs about ageing and older people underpin and drive age discrimination in places like the workplace or the healthcare system.
EveryAGE Counts is the opportunity to work with others in your community to create a society where every person is valued, connected and respected, regardless of age and health.
I stand for a world without ageism where all people of all ages are valued and respected and their contributions are acknowledged.
I commit to speak out and take action to ensure older people can participate on equal terms with others in all aspects of life.
