Thursday 18th June 2015; 15:00 (for a 15:15 start) - 17:00; Westminster, London
The International Longevity Centre-UK, supported by Age UK hosted an event for the launch of new research,The Future of Transport in an Ageing Society.
Demographic change will require a rethinking of current transport strategies. New approaches are needed to ensure that our growing population of older people are able to remain active and mobile during later life. To this end ILC-UK is working with Age-UK to try to set the agenda for the future age-friendly transport policy.
Through The Future of Transport in an Ageing Society project we have developed innovative solutions to the many transport challenges faced by older people. Combining quantitative research using the English Longitudinal Survey of Ageing with the contributions from an expert workshop held in April the report highlights the changes needed during this new Parliament.
A full agenda for this event will be available closer to the event date.
