Age-Friendly Cities and Communities
A timely book by researchers of the University of Manchester
TED Talk: Jeremy Myerson
- Updated Inspiration
Released in early 2019, this relevant book provides a comprehensive survey of theories and policies aimed at improving the quality of life of older adults living in urban areas. Part of the Ageing in a Global Context series, Age-friendly Cities and Communities gathers critical assessments from leading international researchers of the problems and potentials of designing environments that benefit citizens of all ages. The authors consider how cities respond to aging populations, their strategies for developing age-friendly communities, and the extent to which older people themselves can be involved in the co-production of advantageous policies and practices.
