Boosting connections among all ages

Age-friendly initiative has lessons for employers

Having an opportunity to explore how we feel about aging — from a personal standpoint as well as in general — allows us to recognize that attitudes about age are most often unconsciously and systemically incorporated, something that’s been happening since we were young children.

That’s the emphasis of the Age-Friendly Intergenerational Initiative announced by Manitoba’s healthy living, youth and seniors minister, Jim Rondeau, in June 2011.

The vision is to encourage individuals of all ages to be a part of age-friendly communities.
