Call For Weekly Webinar Proposals

The weekly webinars have been a big success. We want to build on this by offering network members the opportunity to organise webinar sessions.


The Platform will facilitate this process by:

  • Managing proposals and timeslots.

  • Promoting on our site, in our newsletter and via social media.

  • Posting slides and recordings after the event (if you wish).

  • Posting related blogs and material.

This call will function like conference panel proposals. You need to complete this online form.

We are supporting the development of a new global body with a special interest in ageism and COVID-19.
