GM Ageing Conference 2017 was a landmark event organised by the GM Ageing Hub, bringing together a wide range of influential GM leaders, world-leading academics and community sector innovators to discuss prospects for building an age-friendly city-region.

  • Present findings from new GM Ageing Foresight and Policy reports.
  • Showcase GM as an international centre of excellence on ageing.
  • Promote GM and external best practice in ageing research, policy and practice.
