British Society of Gerontology Annual Conference 2017 – Swansea University

Croeso i Gymru! | Welcome to Wales!

The Centre for Innovative Ageing is hosting the British Society of Gerontology Annual Conference 2017 at the Bay Campus of Swansea University from the 5th-7th July. This international conference draws over 300 national and international delegates at the forefront of research, practice and policy regarding ageing and older adults. The conference, whilst having an international appeal, will still retain the flare of Wales, even down to the conference title including prose from Wales’ own Dylan Thomas:

“Do Not Go Gentle: Gerontology & A Good Old Age”

Reflecting the breadth and depth of global works on ageing, the conference theme “The Art of Ageing” focuses on the innovative approaches taken by UK researchers and those around the world in the field of social gerontology. The conference is organised around key sub-themes to provide guidance to those who wish to attend:

• Environments of Ageing

• Social & Supportive Relationships

• Participation & Inclusion

• Cognition & Dementia

• Cultural Gerontology

• Health & Social Care

• The Arts & Older People

• Minority & Diverse Populations.
