Yesterday over 170 people from all sectors of Scotland’s economy came together at Glasgow Caledonian University to change the narrative around ageing in our country. GenAnalytics partnered with The Herald to organise this festival of ageing as we believe this is a significantly important conversation we need to have if we are to achieve our ambitions for inclusive economic growth.
An ageing population creates opportunities! We know there are challenges that we need to discuss openly and overcome but how do we make sure we are harnessing the skills and talents of all of our citizens? This is what engAGE is all about. We were delighted to have support from the Scottish Government to organise the event and welcomed the Minister for Older People and Equalities Christina McElvie MSP who delivered the keynote address. You can hear what the Minister had to say about the Scottish Government’s commitment to changing attitudes around ageing and supporting older people here in this short video. More content will be uploaded over the next few days.
