Family gatherings are more commonplace in December, and older adults without families can experience more acute social isolation. Since isolation is both a risk factor for and a consequence of elder abuse, we decided to ask you - our social media followers and colleagues - to commit to speaking with an older adult in December. Our hope was that, by sharing this campaign, we could support older adults and contribute towards the prevention of elder abuse during the 2017 holiday season. More →
Archaeos is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and preservation of cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, irrespective of faith, origin, or gender. The organization actively participates in, disseminates information about, and/or encourages work in three distinct areas:
- Archaeology, Anthropology, & Living Cultures. The exploration, recording, and interpretation of both ancient and contemporary cultures and their languages, traditions, and histories. Advocacy for indigenous peoples, marginalized groups, and endangered languages.
- Built Heritage, Urban Planning & Cartography. The maintenance, conservation of, and recording of cities and ‘cultural spaces’, both ancient and modern.
- Cultural Heritage & Law. The promotion and execution of strategies, legislation, treaties, and agreements for the preservation of both intangible and tangible heritage.
We believe that knowledge of diverse cultures vitally enhances the quality of our lives, fostering self-understanding, community values, and dialogue between groups—principles all of which have the ability to inform globalization, development, and the future of humankind and of the biosphere.
