A Global Peer-Learning Network for Positive Ageing Advocates
We are older adults who believe that our work is to “pass it on” – sharing our know-how with others, capitalizing on what works, forging a place for our new generation, shaping positive expectations for meaningful work and learning lifelong.
Meet the Global Pass It On Network
A grassroots alliance of older people growing the potential for positive ageing
We are living the Longevity Revolution in real time! In 2013, the Pass It On Network founders, Moira Allan and Jan Hively (read their story) created this grassroots network so that older people everywhere could show others how they were finding ways to expand their interests and thrive while coping with the challenges of longer lives.
Since then, our global community has attracted age activists in nearly 70 countries, all of us engaged in discovering solutions to critical issues for older people worldwide. We’ve created the Global Connector where you can learn and share about positive ageing programs, strategies, and innovations.
Enjoy expanding your horizons, meeting new people from all over the world, and have fun doing it. We can choose to live our lives with purpose and to the fullest. We’re all in this together!
In order to provide a welcome and secure experience we are developing a membership community. To join our Global Connector and all it has to offer, click on the “I Want to Join” button above. To learn more, continue reading below.
As the Pass It On Network grows, so will the choice of activities. Our goal is to discover innovative, inexpensive programs, projects and ideas that generate and support active, productive, positive aging wherever they have been developed around the world, and to “pass them on” through our network for sharing and adapting. We scout the world to find out how our peers are contributing and what we can learn from each other and adapt to our circumstances.
Our perceptions about ageing affect quality of life as we grow old. Here, we provide information about trends and resources relevant to positive ageing building on our strengths and maintaining health and wellness.
We are both teachers and learners all of our life. Here, we bring you programs and information on teaching and learning that expand access and respond to the needs and interests of older adults.
There’s no better way to gain personal support for positive aging than with our peers who are sharing their experience. Here, you will find innovative guides to form mutual support groups and build on community assets.
Work is more than employment, it is honing our skills and interests through a lifelong pattern of meaningful work. Find resources here that expand engagement and work opportunities.
Who doesn’t love to browse for inspiration, especially when you’re exploring a new stage of life? “Offerings” in our Global Connector are both from members of our community and curated sources. You will find free and low-cost resources to stimulate you and take you to another level. If you have ideas to “pass on” to your peers – articles, blogs, training courses – please send them here and we’ll contact you.
Your contribution is needed for us to connect positive ageing advocates around the globe by maintaining this website and spreading resources.
Your generous donation will be much appreciated.
