From climate change to refugee health, Global Health Aging covered different topics in March. Ageism is a huge problem for many societies and our goal is to join with other advocates in creating a culture where everyone is respected. We hope that these articles especially the one about Hip Hop-eration, a street-dance group comprising seven older adults, are changing the conversation around aging. Let’s take a look at what happened in March 2016.

Ageing + Communication + Technologies (ACT) is a multi-methodological research project that brings together researchers and institutional and community partners to address the transformation of the experiences of ageing with the proliferation of new forms of mediated communications in networked societies. ACT is comprised of researchers, students, and community and institutional partners from around the world. Together, they investigate how ‘digital ageism’ – the individual and systemic biases that create forms of inclusion and exclusion that are age-related – operates in subtle ways. For more information, please visit ACT and check out this workshop on Scratch, a game used to teach programming to people of all ages. ACT hosted the workshop in February 2016.
