SEAChangeSocietal Education About Aging for Change is a public education program that shines a spotlight on media produced for children that portrays realistic and positive images of older people. The initial SEA Change project was a collaboration with the Children’s Division of American Library Association (Association for Library Service to Children) and The Center On Aging, Health & Humanities at The George Washington University. The collaborators produced a reading list of books that feature positive portrayals of adults in the storyline. You can see that original list by downloading the link below.

SEAChange is committed to promoting media that portrays aging and intergenerational relationships in a positive light as a way to contribute to the societal infrastructure that will allow children, and everyone else, to promote and access the potential of aging.

Goals for SEAChange:

  • Update the reading list
  • Expand the list to include other media in addition to  books
  • Promote the reading list
    • Produce curriculum modules based on the reading list
    • Engage classrooms, PTAs, and other community outreach
    • Promote the values of SEAChange to the creative community to encourage the production of more stories that include positive images of older adults
