Seminar 1st July, London:Outdoor natural environments: An active space for the older adult?

As part of our ESRC-funded seminar series “More of the same is not enough”: New Directions in Ageing and Physical Activity, we’re holding a seminar in London on 1st July 2016 on natural environments and older people’s physical activity.

The seminar is free to attend, but registration is essential – you can register here.

The seminar includes speakers from academic, government and third sector organisations, and is open to all. On the day there will be plenty of time for discussion, and a ‘1-minute pitch’ open mic session for any participant to share information about their own work or important issues.
