Age Friendly Cities

As city populations age there’s a need to consider the specific needs of older people in urban areas. This is a great opportunity: creating age-friendly cities means not just adapting places to deal with problems but encouraging all to take full advantage of city life and living. Bristol aims to be an age-friendly city, but what does this really mean? What can be learned from other cities? Writer and sociologist Anne Karpf (author of How to Age) joins Paul McGarry (Age-Friendly Manchester), Helen Manchester (University of Bristol) and Guy Robertson (Positive Ageing Associates and Adviser to the Bristol Ageing Better programme) to discuss how to make future cities more age friendly.
