Being Curious is a series of presentations from local SA and national initiatives who are curious about enhancing the lives of diverse populations in the community. This series will engage the listener with projects that will encourage you to get more curious. Once your curiosity is sparked, it will kindle further action to engage with these projects, connect older people from your service to them or even ignite your own ventures.
This is an opportunity to find out more about grass roots ideas which aim to impact the lives of marginalised or vulnerable people by strengthening their capacities physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Thursday, 6 August: The Plug-in (COTA SA)
COTA SA’s social enterprise The Plug-in, is a specialist consumer engagement and insights consultancy which connects people aged 50+ with government, business, industry and researchers who want to understand them better.

This presentation will impart some of their top line insights for engaging effectively with older people, drawn from The Plug-in project case studies, and will be of interest to anyone aged 50+, and to any organisation who wants to connect, engage with and understand people over 50 better.
