As part of the Institute for Health and Ageing's monthly colloquium series, Professor Ester Cerin will discuss Neighbourhood environment and active ageing: An international perspective.
The Institute for Health and Ageing (IHA) is pleased to present monthly talks from colleagues and collaborators working across a range of disciplines relative to the pursuit of healthy and active ageing.
We invite you to join us for these seminars, in person or online. All presentations are followed by an opportunity for discussion.
Professor Cerin's presentation on Wednesday 3 August 2016 aims to provide a critical synthesis of the current evidence on aspects of urban design that promote an active lifestyle in middle-aged and older adults across the globe and to identify key research gaps and priorities in the field.
Population ageing and urbanisation are two major global and national demographic trends. These are important phenomena as there is growing evidence that the urban built environment plays a key role in shaping physical activity behaviour. As a result of this evidence, national and international urban and health policy documents have identified environmental changes as effective strategies to create healthier societies.
IHA encourages interested colleagues to attend Professor Cerin's colloquium in person at the IHA offices Level 6, 215 Spring Street, Melbourne or by telephone or videoconference.
When: 2-3pm AEST, first Wednesday of every month (Professor Cerin's Presentation is on Wednesday the 3rd of August)
