Time: 2:00pm - 3.00pm
The 'Ageing and Safe Mobility: 21st Century Streets' webinar series is running through June & July. In this session a panel of leading academics will discuss a range of issues related to ageing and continued mobility. Charles Musslewhite, Ian Shergold and Ben Spencer will be joined by host, Dan Campsall, to look at issues around transport innovation, reducing traffic to encourage active travel and the emergence of autonomous shuttles.
The ageing population is well understood as one of the grand challenges facing the UK and many industrialised nations. Meanwhile, mobility in later life is associated with key beneficial effects on well-being, physical health, economic activity and wider community engagement. In this webinar series we will explore a number of the issues impacting on safe mobility in later life, discussing current thinking with the various report authors and leading researchers.
