ActiveAge found this to be an extremely informative seminar with speakers from The University of British Columbia, Toronto Rehab, Lancaster and Loughborough University. The talks focused on the built environment, it's affect on mental and physical wellbeing, and how we can work together to make our physical environment more age friendly.
