The Silver Tribe
New Zealand Babyboomers Ageing with Attitude
WHAT IS THE SILVER TRIBE?
If you're over fifty, you already belong to the Silver Tribe which is the name I’ve coined for people of the baby-boomer generation; born between 1946 and 1964 who are heading into their older age and a new stage in their lives. Our era learn from and respect our wise elders who have walked the path while also mentoring those as they approach their own transition years.
My name is Chris Hickson and I'm a member of the Silver Tribe. Are you too?
Soon, a third of the population of the Nelson region will belong to the Silver Tribe. That’s a silver-haired tribe of 15,000 people in this region alone!
We share a different outlook on life from the generations which preceded us. We're a tribe with plenty of brain-power, experience and skills. We just have to rethink how we're going to use them now we are "the older generation".
Let’s gather the Silver Tribe together and see just how much we can do in our later years for ourselves, for each other and our community!
