Being Curious is a series of presentations from local 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.
Tuesday 11 June: Opening Doors – Ageing 2.0 Adelaide
The role of Ageing 2.0 Adelaide is in enabling entrepreneurial innovation in longevity and ageing. It will open doors for providers who want to move from providing services specified by the aged care program to ones that enable people to live their longer lives independently and productively. The presentation will talk about entrepreneurial activity and the construction of new ecosystems, ecolabs and living labs that bring new players together to create viable and innovative solutions. Some examples and opportunities will be presented. Providers will have a chance to discuss their strategic interests separate from their operational interests.
Presentations in the 2020 series include:
- Tuesday 25 February: Physical Activity: Foundation to active ageing; Active Ageing Australia
- Friday 20 March: Insights into Better Consumer Engagement; The Plug=in (COTA SA
- Wednesday 29 April: Moving Towards Wellness through Self-Management; LEAP SA
- Tuesday 26 May: Reframing Retirement; Mindset for Life
- Tuesday 23 June: The Forgotten Australians Aged Care Project; RASA & Helping Hand
- Thursday 23 July: Engaging the workforce in integrated spiritual care; Meaningful Ageing Australia
Our role is to support the Aged Services sector in developing the capacity of older people and the workforce which assists them to access their best lives. Our aim is to share information about these organisations and projects because they are striving to enhance the experiences of older people in the community.
It is essential to book in as space will be limited for the Mile End venue. We hope you will be able to log in to view these presentations live or listen later at your convenience.
These sessions will begin at 10am. Grab a coffee and join us in Being Curious!
