This is an era of life long learning
It is of significant importance for the over50 generation to prepare ourselves to live a long, healthy, meaningful and happy life.
In this changing world where we will be part of the workforce much longer than expected, it is important to break old habits. We need to dive deep into who we are, to know what our purpose and our passion in life is. What do we want to do in the next stage of our life? What do we need to make it happen? How do we want to create an impact? It is time to re-invent ourselves!
Wize Move Society has developed a series of programs that can all contribute to support our over50 members to move into the next stage of their life. Programs developed by experts especially for this age group that is re-inventing them self later in life. Programs that are all touching on challenges that this generation will have to deal, with a main focus on:
- Healthy Ageing: physically, mentally and emotionally
- Making new friends, building new professional networks and support systems
- Next career steps and creating new or extra income streams
- Awakening that entrepreneurial mindset and starting new businesses
