Catch up with Strathclyde’s Age-Friendly Academy, our hub of ageing-related research, community projects, and learning provision. Find out about our courses and projects addressing demographic change and health and wellbeing. This event will provide a forum for networking and discussion, allowing contributions to further develop Strathclyde as an Age-Friendly University.

Enjoy a keynote address from Professor Sir Harry Burns, Director of Global Public Health at the International Public Policy Institute and, until 2014, Chief Medical Officer for Scotland. Sir Harry has written extensively and spoken worldwide about how societies can create “wellness” – more than simply the absence of illness.
