Third Age Trust- u3a Week

Our online programme for u3a week 

u3a week is taking place 16-24 September. As part of our national u3a week activity, we are running a programme of online events throughout the week. 

On Tuesday 19 September at 3pm, we will be joined by Heléna Herklots, the Commissioner for Older People and Ageing, who will discuss how she is working for a Wales where older people are valued, rights are upheld and no one is left behind. This talk, hosted by the u3a Future Lives group, will offer an insight into the impact a Commissioner for Older People and Ageing can have in their nation.

On Wednesday 20 September at 10am, John Tucker from the Woodland Trust will be leading a discussion on how to get involved in supporting the wildlife and environment. This follows on from the incredible contribution our membership made to the environment when we planted almost 10,000 trees in our u3a anniversary woodland last year.

On Thursday 21 September at 10am, award winning broadcaster, journalist, activist and TED speaker Carl Honoré will be providing an exclusive talk for u3a where he talks about how ageing should be embraced as an adventure.

All these events can be booked on the u3a week page.

Interest Groups Online Fair

Interest Groups Online, the online u3a community that gives you the opportunity to join groups, talks and courses from the comfort of your home, is running a week of free taster sessions between Monday 2 and Friday 6 October.

The aim of the Fair is to increase the membership of Interest Groups Online, and to promote it as an offering to both u3a members and non-members. Offering taster sessions will give people the chance to try groups before making the decision to join, either in addition to their local u3a membership, or on its own.  

There will be three sessions each day, covering topics from Film Studies to Journeys into Space.

The full schedule can be seen on the u3a website.
