In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ageing Well – Riding the waves of change one-day conference brings together academics, industry partners and community members to explore what ageing well means, and the diversity of factors that influence the individual experience of an otherwise intangible concept.

This event will have a particular focus on how co-design, art and innovation can be used in research and practice settings to develop strategies, programs and settings that can facilitate wellbeing, connectedness and happiness as people age.

The program includes academic presentations by leading researchers in the field of ageing, a lived experience panel discussion and a hands-on interactive co-design workshop.
