Ageing and Mobility: A Grand Challenge

/, Older People/Ageing and Mobility: A Grand Challenge

New publication from our partners* the Centre for Ageing Better

A new paper based on an expert workshop explores how the current transport system is complex and fragmented. The goal of the paper is to stimulate thinking around four key areas we believe need to be addressed in the context of demographic change.

In turn it will help guide our activities into the future.  It explores for example how the current transport system is complex and fragmented, leading to barriers in innovation and collaboration to support healthier and active later lives.

It also finds that the design and thinking that goes into any new technologies, services and business models must include older people as a key user group from the outset.

A copy of the paper is available here: https://www.ageing-better.org.uk/sites/default/files/2019-09/Ageing-and-mobility-grand-challenge.pdf

*A five-year partnership between Leeds Older People’s Forum, Leeds City Council and the Centre for Ageing Better was launched on 11 October 2017 to bring fresh thinking to the challenges and opportunities for older residents in Leeds. You can read more about the partnership here…
