AAG ACT presents: How to achieve authentic co-design with and for older Australians – 2022 Glenda Powell Travelling Fellow

The Australian Association of Gerontology invites you
to an engaging evening to learn more about co-design.

Co-design is a widely misunderstood and misrepresented term. Like other ‘buzzwords’ of recent years (for example ‘green’) it is often used to create the impression that groups or individuals have been meaningfully involved in an activity. In reality, it is often considered a ‘box-ticking’ exercise that is given little thought, planning or meaningful resource allocation. Over the last decade, this has begun to change due to increased consumer activism, creation of dedicated organisations and research. This presentation will outline what co-design is (and what it isn’t), the major developments and research in the field and the work still needed to embed co-design in government and civil society.

This event will feature the Glenda Powell Travelling Fellow Associate Professor Peter Bragge who will present a talk titled “Ask, listen, respond”. Two short presentations will follow with findings from research and an example to highlight the importance of co-design with older people.

  • Hear about co-design, what it is, and what it isn’t
  • Learn about the latest research on co-design
  • Listen to research results and examples of co-design
  • Meet and network with other AAG members and friends
