Golden Age Expo & Summit
Date: August 07, 2020 09:00 – August 09, 2020 18:00
Golden Agers (people who are 45+, ready-to-retire/retired) are mostly baby boomers who are better educated and have years of work and life experiences. As people live healthier and longer, they represent a pool of tremendous untapped resource in terms of ideas and leadership to drive bottom-up innovations and positive social changes. As such, they can become more effective as the key levers for social changes.
The Golden Age Fellows Programme provides a cross-sector and collaborative platform for Golden Agers to turn their passion and innovative ideas into feasible plans and actions. With more time, space, inspiration, training, network, resources and support, they will be able to co-create new ideas and initiate good practices which can be replicated to benefit a wider community and continuously drive changes in the community. As motivated pioneers, they will also be able to influence their peers with their passion, dedication, and innovative initiatives step by step and build a community of changemakers in the long run.
At Golden Age Foundation (GAF), we advocate a paradigm shift to empower Golden Agers to become a new force in society. We are pleased to announce the launch of Golden Age Academy, which aims to transform Golden Agers to become change-makers in solving systemic problems (such as elderly care, education, business for social good, environmental protection, poverty, healthcare, and other areas) by providing innovative long-life learning opportunities and community engagement activities.
