There is growing evidence that well-designed outdoor spaces can enhance the long-term health and wellbeing of those who use them regularly. In March 2010, KT-EQUAL hosted a workshop to examine what this means for older people. With key speakers from local and national government, academia and advocacy, the event made connections between policy, research and practice. Delegates from a range of professions contributed to a multi-disciplinary conversation, exploring how ‘joined-up’ thinking can create truly inclusive places, from local neighbourhoods to entire cities.
