Provincial Learning Event – Active Aging in Recreation

March 17 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Active Aging in Recreation presented by Noelle Virtue, Project Manager, BC Recreation and Parks Association.

The presentation focuses on three initiatives supporting older adults in the recreation sector in BC.  Choose to Move and ActivAge are complementary programs aimed at inactive and isolated older adults.  Hear about the benefits and breadth of these programs, as well as unique examples of how they are being implemented in BC communities to reach the needs of the older adult population.  The third initiative is a training module developed to provide insights into the unique needs of older
adults when participating in recreation or leisure activities. It also helps ensure that our programming creates environments and spaces that foster healthy active aging.
Noelle Virtue is the Project Manager at the BC Recreation and Parks Association working on initiatives at both ends of the age spectrum – infants to 13 years and older adults. She is currently overseeing the Choose to Move and ActivAge programs across the province.  Her previous work has included advocacy and policy development in BC and the UK, with a particular focus on healthy living. She enjoys being active in beautiful British Columbia and exploring nature with her family.

Provincial Learning Events are toll-free teleconferences that take place the third Tuesday of the month from 10:30 am to 12 pm. Everyone is welcome.
