People aged 50 and over from across Greater Manchester are changing the record on what it means to grow older in the region.
They have teamed up for a new campaign – Talking About My Generation – to become community reporters and show what it’s really like to grow older in Greater Manchester.
The reporters will be setting the record straight on ageing by reporting on other people from their generation, charting their stories of life over 50 to celebrate their lives, showing any challenges associated with ageing and they are being overcome, to inspire people to live the life they choose, regardless of age.
From hosting their own reggae radio show to delivering their own photography clubs, the community reporters will also show off their own range of skills, talents and experiences – as well as learning new ones from podcasting to media production.
The team will deliver the campaign until March 2020; meeting at monthly newsrooms and attending local events and groups to cover key issues that they feel are important in later life: from retirement to staying active.
