Join Us in Transforming the Conversation on Healthy Ageing: Special Issue Now Open for Submission

We are thrilled to open submissions for our upcoming Special Issue, “Rising to the Healthy Ageing Challenge: Co-production with Older People and Business,” featured in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.

The demographic landscape is changing, and with it comes the opportunity to rethink and reshape how we approach ageing. Spearheaded by Dr. Elaine Douglas and Prof. Dr. Catherine Hennessy, this Special Issue aims to bring forth ground-breaking research that takes a collaborative approach in addressing the challenges and opportunities associated with an ageing population.

We invite you to be part of this initiative. Whether your focus is on housing, work, physical activity, or any other domain influencing ageing, we want to hear from you. Submissions are open until 31st May 2024, giving you ample time to prepare your work.

Join us as we strive to create supportive environments that facilitate healthy ageing, not just as a social necessity, but as a collaborative achievement. Your contributions can make a tangible difference as we tackle these complex challenges head-on.
