Older people join academics to research UK’s first ‘age-friendly’ city

“In a unique project where older people were trained as co-researchers to look into the age-friendliness’ of cities, sociologists from The University of Manchester have found social inclusion to be the secret to ageing well while age-friendly transport and housing make them feel more a part of the urban neighbourhoods they live in.

The Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA) at The University of Manchester, has created a short film, to be shown in public for the first time this week, which shows how the research can be replicated to make a difference to the lives of older generations in cities around the world.”
