Hosting Conversations About Ageing: What my Younger Self Should Know

Fri, 13 Nov 2020

15:00 - 16:30

Online

In 2015, there were 907,000 people over 55 in Manchester. By 2035, this figure will have grown to over 1.1 million - more than one third of its population. Manchester was also the UK’s first ‘age-friendly’ city region. In this event, local people share their responses to the question ‘What would I want my younger self to know (about growing or being older)?’ A Q&A will follow the event and we are keen to gather and share the experiences of people from diverse backgrounds. We welcome contributions from older people from Black and Minority Ethnic communities, who are LGBTQ+, or with a disability.

This event will be delivered by Dr Sarah Campbell, Professor Anya Ahmed and Dr Melanie Chapman (Manchester Metropolitan University) and Dr Andrew Clark (University of Salford).

Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the event is part of the UK-wide ESRC Festival of Social Science, an annual celebration of the contribution the social sciences make to society.
