Events for Say No To Ageism Week 2012
There will be two separate events held during Say No To Ageism Week.
5th June - Launch of Say No To Ageism Week
Say No To Ageism Week 2012 was formally launched on the 5th June at an event held in the Equality Authority at 11.30am by Minister of State Fergus O Dowd TD who represent Louth, Ireland’s age friendly county.
6th June - Seminar
An insurance seminar was be held on the 6th June in Dublin Castle.
This is the European Year for Active ageing and Solidarity between Generations. In this context this years Say No To Ageism campaign will be focussing on the two ends of the age spectrum, older people and young people and how age factors are considered in providing insurance - what are the facts, what are the stereotypes, if any, - what is the evidence to demonstrate that people of a certain age behave the same or have similar needs etc. How does our perception of age influence service provision and cost?
We have previously facilitated a dialogue with the health service and with the transport sector. This year, we would like to facilitate a discussion between insurance providers and these two important cohorts of your customer base. We are very privileged to have Professor Charles Normand, Professor of Health Policy and Management, TCD to give an update on the Tilda Project.
http://www.tcd.ie/tilda/ We will also have John Armstrong a health economist and Actuary from Aviva Health Insurance. Paul McDonnell should be equally interesting coming from the Irish Insurance Federation and Tom Comerford from the Financial Services Ombudsman office. Mary Honan Barrister at law will provide a legal perspective which will add another dimension to the seminar.
We think you will find this seminar informative and you will have a chance to ask questions on any of the topics covered by the speakers.
If you would like to attend please read the attached invitation below which contains full details on how to register for the event.
This is the ninth year of the initiative, co-funded in 2012 by the European Union under the PROGRESS Programme 2007-2013.
