New Dynamics of Ageing (NDA) Programme update
NDA Logo

The New Dynamics of Ageing (NDA) Programme has seen many exciting developments in the last few months. The new website (www.newdynamics.group.shef.ac.uk), launched in September, features a more user-friendly design, details of all 35 projects involved in the Programme and regular updates on events and progress. Two further NDA Findings documents (3 and 4) were released, one led by Lynn McInnes which focuses on ‘New metrics for exploring the relationship between mobility and successful ageing’ and the other by Judith Phillips focusing on ‘Older people’s use of unfamiliar space’. In early October the fifth Findings document was released, by Penny Vera-Sanso, which highlights essential issues of ‘Ageing, poverty and neoliberalism in urban South India’.

The Older People’s Reference Group have devised an innovative meeting which will take place at the end of October. The meeting gives the group the opportunity to meet with the projects to discuss their experiences of the research process and explore ideas for involving older people in research in the future. In January 2011 the NDA Programme will host an Ageing and Development workshop in London in collaboration with Help Age International. The workshop will present the findings of two projects which focus on aspects of ageing and global development. This will bring together researchers, policy makers, NGOs and others with an interest in the field. Further details of this event will be circulated soon.
