Side thought:

We need to approach ageing in the next 20 years, like we have the environment in the previous 20 years.

Most of us have never really stopped and thought about what the real impacts of ageing may be and what our life and that of our loved ones might be like, once the challenges of later life inevitably start to arise.

We also may not have thought about the opportunities that ageing represents at a personal level and the opportunities that our ageing nation represents to us at a society level (UK and global).

As human beings we are hardwired to ignore our ageing as well as the ageing of our friends and family. Despite being 40, 50, 60 or beyond we all still feel 20 years younger on the inside. And there is nothing wrong with that!

The important thing is to try and tweak that hardwiring just a little bit and be proactive (not reactive) about Action for Ageing!

The latest issues at a glance

For YOU  Issues  

Grey is the new Green! In the 1980’s, the only person interested in the environment or who knew anything about green issues was the neighbourhood hippy.

Fast forward 20 years and many of us are now green issue-aware and plugged-in to greener living:

We are in our own way environmental activists, be it by putting paper in the appropriate recycling bin, eating organic food or driving a car because it has low emissions and is regarded as ‘earth-friendly’. We now not only have a carbon footprint, but we also know what it means, what size it is, what its impact is and why it’s important to reduce it. We know about ozone, rainforest and permafrost depletion and we demand that companies provide environmental impact reports on everything from their open-cut mining operations to their summer staff BBQ. Our household rubbish is split into what can be recycled and what cannot. Our local council doesn’t argue about whether they will have a special recycling collection, but just whether it is weekly or fortnightly. We even switch off our household appliances at the wall when we leave the house or go to bed, and it’s not just because of the money saved. .
