Monda- Friday 10am - 5pm
Opening event on Monday 22nd April, 1pm. All are welcome to attend!
‘Age-friendly communities’ are those that have policies, services and structures that enable older people to ‘age actively’ – that is, live in good security, enjoy good health and continue to participate fully in society.
The Place-Making with Older Adults: Towards Age-Friendly Communities (PLACEAGE) project (2016-19) has been undertaking research to explore how older adults experience ageing across different neighbourhoods and to identify implications for the delivery of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities.
This exhibition will showcase the themes emerging from the research, present a series of recommendations for working towards age-friendly cities, and gather input and further feedback from communities such as Leith.
