AAG are excited to announce an exciting new hybrid approach this year, where a boutique face to face version of the 53rd AAG Conference is incorporated into a larger 2020 AAG Festival of Ideas in Ageing, hosted on a digital platform. The addition of a digital format had already been proposed as a means of addressing equity and climate change imperatives but Covid-19 has made this a priority
The Festival will run online for a number of days in the lead up to the conference. It will comprise a diverse program of abstract presentations, workshops and key sessions from the conference.
The 2020 theme is ‘A climate for change in ageing’. This is an opportunity to unpack the big issues and investigate innovative and effective solutions. With the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety Final Report due the week before and ongoing climate change plus biosecurity threats, such as COVID-19, our conference is an occasion to debate the opportunities in a changing world for older people.
I look forward to welcoming you online, or to my home town of Hobart.
