Urban ageing: Changing demographics and design

Our demographics are changing. By 2050 there will be more over-65 year old individuals than children under 15 for the first time in human history. It is projected that by then more than 70% of the global population will be living in cities by that point. As urban areas are experiencing this seismic shift, we will be presented with extensive challenges.

Join us as we will examine the challenges presented by the demographic shift, and consider the need to adapt for and with the elderly.
