Recognising retired people's knowledge and experiences

Old or retired people are often full of knowledge and experiences. We need to be better at capturing, treasuring and sharing their knowledge, experiences. We need to make it easy to capture, treasure and share their knowledge and experiences. 

We can create stories which then can be treasured and shared with others - both the positive and negative. 

We can encourage and support them to teach or coach or mentor others.

Why the contribution is important

To ensure that old and retired people aren't forgotten and that we treasure their wise views, knowledge and experiences. 

This would also support with growth of young people or other adults.

    Fully agree. And nowadays, we're also starting to see *digitally experienced* retirees. Their knowledge is often very deep and broad, and we need to make sure our communities, both young and older can benefit from that.
