Event Details

WISERD Civil Society Seminar: Making the Connections Between Ageing, Leisure and Economic Development

Date 19th October 2016, Time TBC, Llandinam senior Common Room (L3)

Presenter: Dr Jesse Heley

Chair: TBC

 

In this seminar we consider the evolving relationship between ageing, leisure activities and the maintenance and transformation of local and regional economies.  Building on debates on ‘healthy ageing’ we look beyond the benefits of leisure pursuits to the individual, and also consider the social and economic gains experienced by the wider community.  With reference to volunteering and a range of sites where an older cohort (potentially) play an important in ensuring institutional capacity and sustainability, we also call attention to the dangers inherent in (over)reliance on this demographic. We conclude with a series of recommendations regarding how the ‘grey economy’ might be better accounted for in the policy process such that the experiences of older volunteers can be better appreciated and enhanced.
