As city populations age there's a need to consider the specific needs of older people in urban areas. This is a great opportunity: creating age-friendly cities means not just adapting places to deal with problems but encouraging all to take full advantage of city life and living. Bristol aims to be an age-friendly city, but what does this really mean? What can be learned from other cities? Writer and sociologist Anne Karpf (author of How to Age), joins Paul McGarry (Age-Friendly Manchester), Helen Manchester (University of Bristol) and Guy Robertson (Positive Ageing Associates).

In association with Bristol Health Partners.
