Building age-friendly cities



Date: 17 November 2015
Time: 9:30am - 10:30am
Cost: Free

As city populations age there’s a need to consider the specific needs of older people in urban areas. This is a great opportunity: creating age-friendly cities means not just adapting places to deal with problems but encouraging all to take full advantage of city life and living.

Bristol aims to be an age-friendly city, but what does this really mean? What can be learned from other cities? Writer and sociologist Anne Karpf (author of How to Age), joins Paul McGarry (Age-Friendly Manchester), Helen Manchester (University of Bristol) and Guy Robertson (Positive Ageing Associates) to debate the issues.

This event is part of the Festival of the Future City.
