Sometimes the "Ordinary Citizen" (especially people 55+) may feel they are unable to affect change. As we get older, our social connections decrease or our health issues get in the way. Governments change processes frequently and we don't know who to contact or who is in charge. We may begin to feel powerless and frustrated
As a retiree, and the largest growing demographic, we can continue to educate stakeholders on the needs of an aging population and learn about our rights. To help your voice and message be listened to, UNIFOR Local 5555, Retired Workers Chapter, has invited Ontario Society of Senior Citizens Organizations (OSSCO) to facilitate a 2-hour workshop on Engaging Seniors in the Civic Dialogue Process.
In this workshop, you will learn the many ways to make your concerns known to stakeholders and for problem-solving such as using social media to get your message across, building support for your issue, and much more.
Materials and handouts will be provided. This workshop, presented by OSSCO, is free of charge to retirees or people 55+ . Registration is required as space is limited by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Eventbrite
