Event description

Description

The first seminar in the WCCEH seminar series will focus on

Age Friendly Cities and Transformative Community Development

This seminar will explore the relationship between the processes of community development inspired by the UK-wide Connecting Communities programme and work in Greater Manchester to make the city and region more age-friendly.

Stefan White, from the PHASE research consultancy at the Manchester School of Architecture, will outline how the city’s ‘Age Friendly Neighbourhood’ projects are addressing Greater Manchester’s attempts to integrate health, social care and services around place and people. These programmes are simultaneously both enormous in scope and scale and are resident-led; committed to increasing the involvement of individual citizens in making their city a good place to live. Using examples from Manchester, Stefan will discuss, conceptually and practically, how we might enable positive change for specific, actual people and places in and by these grand systemic transformations.

The seminar will commence at 4pm, but we invite you to join us from 3.30pm for tea & coffee.

Professor Stefan White is an architect researching and practising the architecture and urbanism of social and environmental sustainability. Co-director of the PHASE research and delivery group at the Manchester School of Architecture, he leads the Manchester Age-Friendly Neighbourhoods (Ambition for Ageing) project and the CityVerve ‘PlaceCal’ pilot.
