  • Day 2 (October 6)
  • Day 2 is devoted to the global campaign against ageism. Groups will cover five areas:
    • What is ageism?
    • What is the prevalence/manifestation of ageism?
    • What are the consequences of ageism?
    • What are the reasons for ageism?
    • How can we fight ageism?
  • We will discuss how we can translate the scientific evidence in these five areas into messages for a campaign, phrased in everyday language. The challenge is to have our messages understood by the public and/or politicians -- and to build the messages on scientific evidence. By the end of this meeting, each group is expected to produce a 3-page summary of the main points. Groups will be divided a-priori based on people's preferences. These groups are different from our regular WGs and can be led by other volunteers.
