the 50 plus generation is Re-Creating the Future
"The future depends on what you do today" – Mahatma Gandhi
The 50 plus generation is coming together on our online platform
Wize Move Society
On May 1, 2021 Move in2 the Future launched the Wize Move Society: the online community especially for the 50 plus generation. A community where we bring together people from all over the world and all different backgrounds. It is our intention to have fun, meet new friends, to re-invent ourselves, to learn from each other and to share our knowledge, experience and wisdom. Most importantly to create solutions together for the new challenges that we are facing, to start new businesses, to think about our next career move or semi retirement opportunities.
Move in2 the Future
The world is facing a growing older population with an increased life expectancy. A population that is healthy longer, active longer and better educated than ever. This population of the over 50 will be part of the multi generation workforce longer to be able to secure their retirement income probably into their 90’s. The over 50’s bring knowledge, experience and wisdom that is of significant importance to create the future.
The world around us is changing rapidly and the 50plus generation can and should play a significant role in creating the future.
In society, the economy and on the labor market, change is clearly noticeable; a result of far-reaching digitalization, robotization, increasing complexity and the totally unexpected emergence of the COVID-19 virus. In this time of disruptive change, we need to work together to create a world that is more humane, more sustainable and more connected. A world that offers a safe place for everyone and and offers equal opportunities for people of all age groups, cultural and educational backgrounds, gender, etc.
We see the 50plus generation playing a more significant role in the creation of a new future for all of us by sharing their knowledge, experience and wisdom, by stepping forward, being active members of society and pro-actively contributing to building a legacy for generations to come.
Knowledge is no longer enough: flexibility, creativity, innovative capacity, entrepreneurship and self-learning capacity, leadership, self-knowledge and the ability to respond quickly to changes are becoming increasingly important. When facing the new challenges, many people tend to stick to old habits while a new way of thinking and a new perspective on society is needed; this group often has to re-invent how to use that enormous potential in a way that suits them as human beings, that fits in with the new reality, which focuses on creation and innovation.
Of course we acknowledge the reality of day to day life:
- More than ever we notice the prejudice or discrimination on the grounds of a person’s age (ageism).
- Many men and women who have lost their jobs or business in the past couple of years, have a hard time to find their new role in society. It needs a different mindset and different perspective on the world: there is a need to re-invent themselves.
- Although we live longer, many men and women do not have a sufficient retirement plan and cannot afford to stop working at the age of 65 or even 70.
- Loneliness and even depression (empty nest, loss of partner, loss of work environment, pandemic, etc)
There is a search for purpose, passion, pleasure and a paycheque
Offer an environment to meet like minded people from all over the world and all walks of life, to connect, have fun and contribute to build a better future all of us
Shift the way society thinks about the 50plus generation and the significant role they can/should play in creating the future
Change the mindset of the 50plus generation so that they redefine their purpose, find their passion, are aware of their potential and their ability to play an active role in creating their own future and the future of the generations to come
Have a positive impact on the economy by creating new opportunities, projects and jobs, to empower this generation and amplify their voice
“Research has shown that people in general perform better, are more motivated and more creative when they are part of a community of like-minded people”
Move in2 the Future offers the 50plus generation that community!
Wize Move Society
Move in2 the Future offers a unique concept that brings people of the 50plus generation together in a safe online environment: a community where we together take time to reinvent ourselves, find our purpose, acquire new skills, share ideas about the new challenges we are facing and where we create new solutions, new opportunities, businesses, projects, NGO’s: community based economic development!
But there is also time to relax and have fun: coming together in weekly world cafe settings where we really get to know each other on a deeper level. Or where we can gather to exchange ideas about our challenges or for example share our favourite books, movies, recipes, health and wellbeing or even start writing our stories.
It will be an expanding, evolving eco system that we are not only part of, but where there is an opportunity for each of us to take the lead in new activities and new ventures.
