Age-Friendly for All? A Discussion about Ageism and the Urban Environment, with Amanda Grenier and Chris Phillipson

June 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

With an aging population, it is more important than ever to foster inclusive spaces for people of all ages. Join us for a fascinating conversation with Dr. Amanda Grenier and Dr. Chris Phillipson about how ageism (discrimination based on age) impacts the experience of getting older in cities and why we need inclusive and anti-ageist urban strategies.

Dr. Grenier is a Professor and the Norman and Honey Schipper Chair in Gerontological Social Work at the University of Toronto and Baycrest Hospital. Dr. Phillipson is a Professor of Social Gerontology and the Inaugural Director of the Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing at the University of Manchester.
