From ‘age friendly cities’, to ‘smart cities’ and ‘sustainable cities’, how we live together in urban spaces is on the public agenda, here in Montreal and around the world. But who are the citizens that are imagined and implied by these terms? How can we work together to make the city a better and more inclusive place to grow old?
B/OLD : Aging in our city was a free and trilingual (English, French, LSQ) event, that took place at Concordia University on May 16 and 17, 2019, with extended programming May 14 to May 24.
B/OLD examined the experiences of aging in Montreal from a multidisciplinary, multisectoral and intergenerational perspective inviting community activists, students, policy makers, the media and, most importantly, older adults themselves, to “be bold” and to embrace “old”.
