Positive Ageing Week 2022

Celebrating older people in our communities and highlighting positive ageing.
26 – 30 Sept

Join us in celebrating Positive Ageing Week

Positive Ageing Week is about celebrating the contribution older people and highlighting the positivity of older age.

Throughout the week we take the opportunity as individuals, workplaces and community groups to celebrate older people we know who enrich our lives and communities.

A key part of the campaign is our positive ageing local heroes exhibition – a collection stories and photos of older heroes from across Galway City and County who are contributing greatly to communities and/or are a great example of healthy and active ageing.
