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. To learn more about us, join our monthly Open House held the first Tuesday of every month.

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.

Lifelong Learning

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.

Community Support

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 & Economic Security

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.
