Do you know someone interesting, kind, worthwhile, brave, crazy, amazing, selfless, or generous and who is continuing living life to the full - an "Active Ager"? You should know about the Life Story Challenge which is now open for your entries.
Simply create a Life Story about someone you know using photos and stories you’ve collected and tell the story of their life and what they are doing now.
It’s a brilliant way to tell the world how great they are.
What’s more, you can also enter a competition if you get your story done by 16.September 2012. The best entries from each country will win a prize and the overall winner will get a trip to Brussels to receive their prize at the European Awards Ceremony.
This Challenge is part of the European Year 2012 which is designed to celebrate active ageing and relationships between people of different generations.
What is active ageing?
Active ageing means growing old in good health and as a full member of society, feeling more fulfilled in our jobs, more independent in our daily lives and more involved as citizens. As people get older, they can play a big and important part in families, in society and at work.
