Speaker onstage taking questions from the audience

Concordia University's engAGE Living Lab and CREGES present a symposium about transformative research practices supporting equity, diversity and inclusion.

Concordia University's engAGE Living Lab Créatif offers opportunities for a fruitful exchange of ideas informed by a growing community of older adults, students, and university researchers, in its lab located within the Quartier Cavendish shopping centre in Cote Saint-Luc, Québec.

CREGES brings together the worlds of research, professional practice and citizen action around a common project, social gerontology. Social gerontology is a multidisciplinary field of study focused on the social aspects of aging.

Community-Defined Evidence seeks to develop an evidence base that uses cultural and/or community indices, to influence the research and evaluation agenda, as well as policymakers and funding agencies, to implement and use innovative community-based practices to reduce disparities and improve availability, quality and outcomes of healthcare for all individuals and families.
