Information needed on skills sharing from those aged 50+

The Beth Johnson Foundation are inviting those who are 50+ to take part in a short survey to help them collect information on the 2012 UK Older People’s Day theme of ‘Big Skills Share’.

UK Older People’s Day coincides with the International Day of the Older Person. It aims to celebrate the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society and to the economy. This year it is on 1st October and is about sharing skills and experience either within the 50+ age group or between generations. There are 4 proposed areas to celebrate the contribution older people already make, and arrange new opportunities for your own age group or different generations to share skills, time and experience.

The survey needs to be completed by 13th September 2012. Its results will help to collate evidence of older people’s views around skill sharing with other generations and activity on 1st October.
