What is the ‘University of the Third Age or U3A'?

The University of the Third Age is a movement, founded in France, in 1973, in response to a rapidly growing demand among retired people and other seniors for opportunities to keep active and stimulated, to continue learning and to keep in touch with the world in a fun and friendly way.

The Mission of the U3A

Its mission is to promote and practice lifelong learning and active creative ageing, for the older members of our community. In particular, we think that it is important to meet new people, have some fun and share skills, experience and interests with others.

Greystones U3A Branch

Our branch will contribute to our healthy ageing through crucial factors, such as mental stimulation, social interaction, being connected and maintaining a positive outlook on life. This is at the heart of the U3A mission and ethos.

So let us enjoy it!
