Join us Wednesdays at tea time to share what’s working about growing older through short talks and long conversations. All ages are welcome to hear from our older adults in the community, to join in the discussion, and to create art.

The speakers who will kickstart the conversation on Wednesday December 4th are:

Satoshi Ikeda
“Carbon catching art for global cooling”.
Satoshi is a professor at Concordia University, with research interests in the political sociology of global futures and sustainable alternatives to corporate economy. Satoshi role models, educates, and inspires the students and community members to build their own initiatives of sustainable and collective practices on campus and into the community.

Peter MacLaurin
He is a retired teacher from Montreal Oral School for the Deaf, living in the Laurentians. At 80 years of age, he is a school board commissioner (Sir Wilfred Laurier), Morin Heights Town Councillor and a maker of maple syrup which has found its way around the world. Today he will be talking about Being engaged, involved and helping others.

The series will resume in January at the Meet Me at the Mall Living Lab, 5800 Cavendish, Space C-14.

As an older adult, if you or someone you know would like to sign-up to briefly introduce the inspiration for one of the teapot chats this fall, kindly reach out to Lindsay Clarke for more details (honorarium provided for speaker)
