Description:Webinar: Intergenerational Approach to Changing the Narrative on Age and Ageing - European Public Health Week Event Highlight This event is co-organised by Yongjie Yon and Hilaire Armstrong from the WHO Regional Office for Europe (WHO/Europe), and Ruth Eichinger (EUPHA - European Public Health Association). The webinar is also supported by EUPHA’s Healthy Ageing Section. Join us on Thursday, May 16th at 13:00 CEST for a webinar aiming to challenge current perceptions surrounding age and ageing - within the framework of the WHO Global Campaign to Combat Ageism - and highlight the negative impact of ageism on health. Combatting ageism is one of the key areas for action under the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing. The webinar brings together diverse voices to explore the pervasive issue of ageism and its impact on various aspects of society, from careers to healthcare delivery and community engagement. Through personal anecdotes, clinical insights, and intergenerational perspectives, panellists will delve into the challenges posed by ageism and propose actionable strategies to change the narrative on age and ageing as well as to foster inclusivity and combat stereotypes. Through this webinar, attendees will gain insights into the multifaceted nature of ageism and leave empowered with actionable strategies and practical tools to challenge ageism and create a world for all ages – including intergenerational practice, which according to the UN Global report on ageism is one of three strategies proven to work to reduce ageism. Speakers and Panellists. The webinar will be moderated by Hilaire Armstrong , Technical Officer, Youth Initiative, WHO/Europe.
