B/OLD ideas about aging
This series of unique panels and roundtables is part of B/OLD: Aging in our City's special programming on May 16 and 17.
Through these panels and roundtables, B/OLD: Aging in our City brings together researchers, community activists, students, policy makers, the media and, most importantly, older adults themselves, inviting all participants to “be bold” and to embrace “old.”
What is an age-friendly city and how do we implement it in Montreal? What concerns do older adults have about housing, and how can we devise innovative solutions? How do older adults use digital technologies to explore their city? Our panelists and keynote speakers are ready to answer these and many more questions.
