One Response to Blueprint for an Ageing Australia

  1. For the first Australian College of Educators event of the year, we are looking at “Seniors as Lifelong Learners” with a FREE twilight symposium at the QLD State Library – Brisbane, from 4.30pm, Wednesday 23 March 2016.

    Will you please help with ensuring contacts and colleagues through your networks are advised of this professional development opportunity? It will be appreciated if we can reach to local level across all sectors and regions for those within travelling distance of the venue.
    Further education is an imperative for as we know, in the absence of learning towards one’s own interests and needs, there is loneliness and cognitive decline. Educators, trainers and facilitators have a role to embed a learning culture that sustains one throughout life.
