Event description
International Conference on Sport and Physical Activity for Older Adults

About this Event

The University of Hertfordshire has been working with colleagues in Japan on an ESRC-funded project to better understand the benefits, and address the challenges, of delivering sport and physical activity for an ageing population. There is an unprecedented number of people in the world over the age of 60, and Japan and the UK are two of the nations most affected by this dramatic demographic shift to an ageing population. Japan has the highest life expectancy of any country, and Japan and the UK are the only two countries in the world to have ‘Dementia-friendly communities’ in national policies.

This conference brings together practitioners, policy-makers, academics and service-users to share experiences and good practice related to the delivery of sport and physical activity programmes for older adults, and specifically for people living with dementia.

Please note there will be a £50 charge to your organisation for any 'no-shows'/non-attendance on the day.

If you have any questions or queries please contact Elizabeth Pike at e.pike@herts.ac.uk.
