Ageing Sucks! Can VR Help?


Getting old doesn't have to suck. Especially when so much thought and care, and so many resources are potentially available, to make it an awesome experience. This virtual social media meetup is inspired by Global Conference on Ageing happening in Toronto happening August 8-10. Here are their global themes. While reviewing them, think about how virtual reality might play a role.

  • Combating Ageism
  • Toward Healthy Ageing
  • Age-Friendly Environments
  • Addressing Inequalities

See below for more detail within each global theme.

BTW, also see below my favorite music video, sung by 94-year-young Raymond Penfield!
