A REIMAGINED 2021 Seniors Festival will be staged next month.
Mornington Peninsula Shire, community, businesses and organisations have put together a COVIDSafe calendar of events complementing a host of online and radio programs through the Victorian Seniors Festival website.
Events and offers include a free plant giveaway at The Briars, the workshop Compost Like a Champion at the Eco Living Display Centre, Tai Chi at shire libraries, community choir workshop, and downsizing your home online information sessions.
The festival will be launched on the inaugural Australian Ageism Awareness Day: Friday 1 October, coinciding with the UN’s International Day of Older Persons.
The Ageism. Know it. Name it campaign from EveryAGE Counts is encouraging members of the community to attend a virtual morning tea to get conversations brewing about the impacts of ageism on the community – socially, economically and even physically. The morning teas can be hosted on any date and time that is suitable.
