Positive Ageing Week 2011 - From Friday 23rd of September to  Saturday 1st October 2011

Age Action, with the support of ESB Electric Ireland, is Celebrating Positive Ageing in Ireland.  Positive Ageing Week (PAW) is a festival which highlights the positive aspects of ageing and celebrates the contribution older people have made and continue to make to their communities 

This is the 9th year Age Action and ESB Electric Ireland have marked UN International Day of Older Persons (1st October) and each year PAW has become bigger and better. Last year there were over 1,000-recorded events and going on the responses received from around the country this year will be even bigger and better with at least 1250 events and activities across Ireland, including Northern Ireland.

Age Action and ESB Electric Ireland encourages every community to organise an event during PAW as a way of demonstrating that as a nation we are living longer and that ageing is not a burden but an opportunity.
