On 4 September 2019 in Greece, it was announced that the Global Centre for Modern Ageing (GCMA) has been successful in joining the European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL), a community of Living Labs that aims at contributing to the creation of a dynamic ecosystem of innovation with a global reach.
Office designs that improve mental health outcomes. Socially lead residential developments that create stronger communities. Bedroom lighting that improves sleep patterns by mimicking the body's circadian rhythm. Air filtration systems that reduce asthma attacks. These are just some of the innovations and emerging design ideas that will be discussed at Future Forum_Wellbeing by Design being held in Adelaide next month.
A research report by the Global Centre for Modern Ageing (GCMA) has today been released to the community, detailing key design principles for the new Strathalbyn aged care precinct.
On Friday 21 June, we were honoured to host the 2019 Governor’s Leadership Foundation Program into ‘Inclusive Communities – a disability and ageing perspective’.
On Thursday 23 May 2019, we said goodbye to the Aurrigo ‘Elliot’ pod from Elliot Gardens after a successful 8 week trial. We were inspired by the wonderful ideas shared by residents for their dream future super pod which would meet all their needs and wants, present and future.
On 14-15 May 2019, our CEO Ms Julianne Parkinson and COO Andrew White attended the 10th International Ageing Asia Innovation Forum 2019 in Singapore. We were so proud to have Julianne asked to chair insightful panel discussions and to be a part of an international panel of judges for the 2019 Eldercare Innovation Awards.
It’s been quite a time at the Global Centre for Modern Ageing since our launch in October. In 2019, we have experienced a very strong response from more than seventy businesses and researchers wanting to understand more about the Modern Ageing sector and explore what role they could play in understanding the changing needs and wants of people as they age.
Aged care residents in Strathalbyn will be part of a nation-leading initiative which will see them co-design a new aged care precinct to better meet their needs now and into the future.
The newly established Global Centre for Modern Ageing (GCMA) has added another international heavyweight, Dr John Beard, to its Board.
Last week, the GCMA were delighted to partner with Unchartered Leadership on the Second Life project designed to see if there was a way to tap into the minds of our wise elders to address the increasingly complex societal challenges in today's world.
Modern ageing is about an inclusive future, a future that engages people throughout the whole of their lives.
It reinvigorates people to live longer, healthier and happier lives and brings benefits to communities and economies.
A social and economic movement to improve the lives of older people is gaining momentum, says Global Centre for Modern Ageing Chief executive Julianne Parkinson.
A journey has begun to reverse the view that becoming older is an economic and social burden. Instead, growing older should be valued differently - as an age of opportunity. From the moment we’re born we are ageing. We are pleased to be at the cutting edge of a movement creating a new narrative about ageing.
Business leaders have welcomed the establishment of the Global Centre for Modern Ageing as being at the forefront of positive change that is locally relevant and globally significant.
Take a glimpse into the future and the smart homes where people will be more secure and comfortable.
Businesses, entrepreneurs and older people look ahead.
