MTalks Ageing Melbourne: Most liveable city or looming disaster?
Wed 8 Nov 2017, 6.00pm–7.30pm
In 2017, Melbourne was again named the world’s most liveable city for a record seven years in a row—but how liveable is Melbourne for our ageing population? And what can we do better now to plan for the increasing percentage of people over 65 in coming decades?
As part of Sibling Architecture’s ‘Designing the age-friendly city‘ day-long takeover of MPavilion, this evening panel event will cover topics of technology, diversity, care and liveability, and will be an interactive conversation in which audience members are encouraged to bring questions and comments for a diverse panel of speakers, moderated by Sibling Architecture co-director Timothy Moore and Melbourne School of Design director Alan Pert.
