Conversations on Urban Ageing Series

Hosted by the Manchester Urban Ageing Research Group

Understanding the relationship between population ageing and urban change has become a major issue for public policy and an increasingly important area for interdisciplinary research. The Manchester Urban Ageing Research Group (MUARG) brings together researchers from a wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds. They are committed to working with national, regional, and local government, third-sector organizations, NGOs, and older people to promote 'age-friendly' urban environments.
