Philosophy of the Third Age! The Perch Rock (New Brighton) Open forum 16/03/2020 19:00
The early part of retirement is often referred to as the Third Age of life.

This evening will look at the impact of these newfound freedoms; can these improvements be sustained for subsequent generations? What should society expect from those enjoying these benefits?

Or is it time to radically rethink our approach to the ages of our life from an inter-generational perspective
