Welcome to Japanese Visitors

On Tuesday 18 June we welcomed visitors from the Kobe Silver City College, Japan.

We shared information about our respective organisations and their programmes for seniors. Despite many differences, we all promote life-long-learning and we were delighted to hear about the Japanese experience.

A message from the President of U3A Network Victoria

"I am delighted to share with you the news that the U3A Movement in Victoria has won the Age-Friendly Victoria award, for an organisation in our State that promotes active ageing. This year’s Victorian Senior of the Year Awards were presented on 9 October at a Government House ceremony hosted by the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria. We at Network were thrilled that our movement has been recognised during the Seniors Festival this month as playing such an important role in the lives of seniors."
