The 53rd AAG Conference theme is ‘A climate for change in ageing’. 2020 is set in the context of the Covid 19 pandemic. With the imminent release of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Final Report, ongoing challenges of climate change and an uncertain economic future there has never been a better time to unpack the big issues and investigate innovative and effective solutions.
Join dozens of international and Australian speakers online, as well as over 250 presentations/workshops/symposia and online social networking activities, between 18th and 20th November 2020. I look forward to welcoming you into our online world and to helping you discuss the big issues and big solutions.

The 2020 AAG Conference is moving wholly online and will optimise your connections, engagement and knowledge safely during the pandemic. The 53rd AAG Conference - Digital will run from Wednesday 18th to Friday 20th November, with collaborative forums/workshops running on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th November.
Our theme of “A Climate for Change in Ageing’ was prescient with the Covid-19 pandemic, joining other major issues to be engaged in including the Royal Commission into Aged Care and Climate Change, all of which are having significant impacts on ageing and older people.
AAG had planned to have a greater digital focus this year, as it not only increases equitable access but also supports our climate change focus, but fast tracked this when Covid-19 hit.
The 53rd AAG Conference has over 250 presentations and interactive sessions, as well as six workshops and training opportunities, plus an array of leading thinkers both from Australia and overseas. ABC’s Radio National’s ‘Big Ideas’ program will be again broadcasting from the digital AAG Conference.
We look forward in you joining us online in the new medium for our conference, in our journey of to improve the experience of ageing through connecting research, policy and practice
