Interested in how our cities and communities can become more age-friendly?

You are warmly invited to this public seminar to share your experiences and to hear from international experts.

Professor Chris Phillipson and Dr Tine Buffel from Manchester University, UK, have been working for many years on ways to build age-friendly places, on understanding the challenges of doing so, and devising practical ways to improve life for older people in cities and communities. T

hey will speak about their experiences in Manchester and their research with other cities and will consider how older people themselves are central to creating good solutions.

The seminar will also feature contributions from people involved in making Melbourne and Victoria more age-friendly – activists, ambassadors and researchers.

This thought-provoking and practical seminar will provide a unique opportunity to learn more about building age-friendly cities and communities, from Manchester to Melbourne.

Refreshments will be supplied.
