A short description of the event:

From age friendly cities, to smart cities to sustainable cities, how we live, work, play, engage and negotiate the urban environment is on the public agenda. Age 3.0: Aging in the city considers the multiple intersections of innovation, technologies and aging, and brings together voices from the university, Montreal-based community groups, and local businesses to explore what it means to grow older together in the city. Age 3.0 asks its participants to challenge assumptions about aging and innovation, which often see the two as irreconcilable. We seek to engage with ideas and methods for asserting the important role of older adults in building the city of today and tomorrow.

Age 3.0: Aging in the city is a one-day event at Concordia University. With free activities in both French and English, the day is set up as a fair where participants are invited to move freely to concurrent activities throughout the day. Join us in the atrium on the ground floor of the EV building, and from there move on to lively panel discussions, exhibitor kiosks, art installations and film screenings.
