Active Ageing Week ’17

Active Ageing Week celebrates positive ageing through lifelong wellness activities.

The objective of Active Ageing Week is to celebrate the many varied possibilities to help people stay active and engaged as they age. It promotes the benefits of healthy lifestyles, staying active and engaged in safe and supportive environments.

Active Ageing Week was initiated in 2003 by The International Council on Active Ageing (ICAA) and is observed globally during the last week of September each year.

This year’s theme of ‘Coming Together Active Together’ focuses on intergenerational connectedness – creating environments that bring people of all ages and stages of life together for wellbeing and a sense of community. Intergenerational connectedness is one of the five key priorities to ageing well from the Age Friendly SA Strategy.
