Age-Friendly Design is a concept that’s increasingly being considered and applied across councils and cities both in Australia and internationally. This conversation will bring together multiple views, to interrogate whether AFD allows for expansion beyond older-age considerations to an all-age inclusive approach to urban design.

Curated by Young Seniors + Co, the invited speakers will explore how the mixed needs of older-aged citizens overlap with the needs of other groups in our community.

This talk is part of the ‘Challenging the ageing narrative’ series being presented at MPavilion this season.

This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2022.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the people of the Eastern Kulin Nations as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
