About this project
Wise Up To Ageism is a two hour online session in which you will find out more about ageism. It is part of the Age Proud Leeds campaign to raise awareness of ageism and change negative attitudes about ageing and older people.
Open to all! Book your place.
The aim of Wise Up to Ageism is to raise awareness of ageism and encourage people to find out more, discuss and reflect. We also aim to help you to challenge ageism in your everyday life. The session explores the five key messages from the Age Proud Leeds campaign:
- Let’s talk about ageism
What is ageism and how widespread it is
- Ageism affects people of all ages
Whether we are younger, middle aged or older – ageism affects us all
- Ageism. What does it do to us?
Age discrimination has many negative effects and having a positive attitude to ageing can help you live well for longer
- Older, different, equal
Older people are diverse and ageing and ageism affect us differently
- Time to feel good about ageing
Ageing brings many benefits, share the positives and celebrate the contributions made by older people.
Wise Up to Ageism is delivered via zoom in either an interactive 90 minute online session or 1 hour webinar, and is open to all. You can book your own place or request a session for a group such as a community group, work colleagues, or sports team.
We recommend the 90 minute online interactive session for groups up to 15 people and the webinar for groups up to 200 people. Please note the webinar has less interaction for participants. The sessions can be booked at flexible times and are currently FREE.
You can book your own place or request a session for a group (up to 8 people), such as a community group, work colleagues, or sports team.
