Today’s News: India Ratifies Climate Deal and Fighting Aging Stereotypes | 10-03-16

Good morning! Here’s today’s news. The problem with aging stereotypes is that they are self-reinforcing. The more we see older adults act a certain way in films and on TV, the more likely we will be to see their behavior as “normal.” There is also evidence that ageism is unhealthy. So, today, I’d like to talk about how to fight back against aging stereotypes.

Join us as we discuss this story plus India’s decision to ratify a major climate deal, Columbia’s decision to reject their peace deal, why women in Poland are going on strike today, a timeline for the Brexit and much more!
