How can social enterprises contribute to health and wellbeing in an ageing population?
This is one of a series of events bringing together people from the social enterprise sector, the public sector and the CommonHealth research team to explore the role of social enterprise in improving health. CommonHealth is a five year research programme of the Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health at Glasgow Caledonian University which is developing ways to measure the impact of social enterprises on the health and wellbeing of individuals and communities. As the Focus 50+ project comes to an end this event will offer an opportunity to discuss the findings, and consider the implications for the future role of social enterprise in the health and social care sector.

10.00 - 12.00 Design Thinking Workshop: What will it mean to be 50+ in 5, 10 or 15 years from now?

Using participatory, design-led techniques we will explore these questions. This session will be active, fun and informative.
