All Voices Heard: Making Cities a Great Place to Age


Audience AdultsSuitable for all

In cities across the globe, older people have fascinating stories and experiences to share about what makes a city a great place to grow old in.

This engaging event brings together members of the Manchester Urban Ageing Research Group’s Older People’s Forum to capture some of these remarkable tales.

The event will feature an exclusive screening of a new, powerful short film capturing just what ‘age-friendly’ means and sharing the views of older people who can help us understand how we make cities a desirable place to live out the later years of life.

The film has been produced as part of the transnational Ageing in Place in Cities project and features city residents, volunteers at community centres, members of older people boards and participants of age-friendly services.

Some of our forum members will share their own experiences reflecting on the themes in the film. You’ll have the opportunity to join this important, ongoing conversation as part of this engaging event.

Following the event enjoy a complementary hot drink and cake of your choice from Cafe 65, in the Alliance Manchester Business School.
