Unlocking human potential across the community through intergenerational approaches

Research in ‘An Age Friendly World’ will shed light on how individuals at every stage in the life course can achieve their potential.  Our research will empower governments, community agencies, private businesses, care providers, regulators, the young, the middle aged and the old, to create a better, healthier and more productive society.  Our goal is a community that values and enables individuals at all ages, and that finds new ways to help them identify and meet their needs and goals.
