Cities are increasingly important spaces for people to live and age well in. The World Health Organization calls cities that encourage healthy ageing ‘Age friendly cities.’ If we want to understand how older adults experience cities, we must engage with them, as they are experts. Capturing a sense of place is key to this understanding. Our event will offer insights on this subject through an exhibition, policy guidelines and diaries from older place makers. It uses data gathered from a project in which we worked with neighbourhoods in cities in the UK – Manchester, Edinburgh and Glasgow and in Brazil.
