International conference on Habitats for Happy and Healthy Ageing
From Tuesday, 11 October 2016
To Friday, 14 October 2016

The four conference themes are:.

Theme 1: Healthy, happy and active ageing

How can we realise healthy, happy and active ageing for all?

We invite abstracts that consider diverse factors including exercise, nutrition, service provision, assistive technologies and adaptations, income and benefits, social isolation and participation.

Theme 2: Co-designing the built environment with mobility in mind

What makes an environment age-friendly? How can we better involve user groups in the design of our built environment to enhance mobility?

We invite abstracts on the physical design of age-friendly environments that support mobility at a range of scales, from individual homes to the neighbourhood and the wider community, as well as on innovative methods of co-design, particularly those engaging older adults.

Theme 3: Experiencing mobility

What does mobility mean for older adults? How is it experienced and perceived?

We invite abstracts on various aspects of ageing and mobility including mobility behaviours and practices, aids and barriers to mobility, what motivates mobility, and older people’s experiences and perceptions of outdoor mobility.

Theme 4: Health, mobility and place through the lifecourse

Does an individual’s place of birth, and the places in which they have lived, influence their health and mobility in later life? What might the introduction of a lifecourse perspective bring to our understanding of the relationship between health and place?

We invite abstracts on the relationship between health and place as conceived through a lifecourse perspective. This could be through the use of historical environmental data, or other approaches.
