Título: Ageing and mobility : a grand challenge
Publicación: London : Centre for Ageing Better, 2019Descripción física: 16 p.Notas: Sumario: More of us are living longer than ever before. Someone aged 65 today can expect to live to 85, nearly ten years longer than their parents' generation, with profound implications for how we organise society. Mobility and transport are key in helping people to remain healthy, active and connected in later life. Mobility meets practical needs, such as getting to the shops or the hospital, or seeing friends and family and participating in community life. It also serves emotional needs, improving both quality of life and wellbeing as we age. How we get around also influences how well we age, with an increasing body of evidence suggesting that walking, cycling and the use of public transport all contribute to better health outcomes. Despite this, one third of older adults report unmet travel needs in relation to pursuing leisure activities or visiting friends and family.Materia / lugar / evento: Movilidad Accesibilidad Envejecimiento Personas mayores Nuevas tecnologías Innovación disruptiva Inclusión social Longevidad Ageingnomics.
