About ReWirement Action
Dedicated to redefining the life of golden agers above 50
Our mission and approach
Our mission is to empower the golden agers to rethink, restrategize and recreate new opportunities and fulfilment in an age of longevity.
Consider this: In the 21st century, people will on average live 30 years longer than those in the 20th century; a 100-year life will become a common place. The majority of the population will have to extend their working life, easily into the 70s and 80s. Education will not be confined to the early part of one’s life, but will be needed at many stages in a variety of forms, some of which could be very expensive. As there will be more transitions in the course of one’s life, it is time to reconsider our approach to career, education, social circle and financial and transformational assets.
Our 6-month ReWirement Action Program is designed to encourage and co-create a growth mindset, social network, hobby and skillsets with our participants to reconstruct the blueprint of their long life. As we believe that one learns best in a relaxed and enjoyable environment, all of our workshops and events are designed to be experiential in nature, with minimal classroom-type lectures and presentations. They are all highly participative, interactive, exciting and fun where participants may also be invited to serve as speakers or facilitators.
We look forward to welcoming you onboard to a new journey of 100-year youthfulness!

I am a speech therapist and a teacher of the English language, retired from my full-time job 14 years ago. I joined the ReWirement Action Programme for learning new knowledge, making new friends, bettering the quality of my life and seeking ways to pay back my society. My passion is to connect with people of all ages, link people with a difference to the community, and enable home care for the elderly.

Shirley had worked in Hong Kong financial sector of thirty years. She was a foreign exchange and options trader in the first part of her working life before emigration. After returning to Hong Kong, Shirley moved to Sales & Marketing in Treasury. At present, she is semi-retired and doing contract jobs when available. During the first time she comes across the idea of “ReWirement”, she couldn’t agree more and joined the program immediately in April 2019. This is the fact in general that human beings have a longer life, the age of 90 to 100 are very common nowadays. If people retire in the age of 60-65, how should we deal with the future 30 to 40 years? This is the reason why “ReWirement” stunned her completely.
