Coming soon: International Day of Older Persons conference


The International Day of Older Persons is an annual event, driven by World Health Organisation, and held on the 1st October. This year, to celebrate, the Western Australian division of the Council on the Ageing (COTAWA) is holding a conference based on the theme, ‘the future we want, what older persons are saying.’

Kieran Wong will join Ian Birch from the Town of Cambridge to discuss CODA’s work for the Council, which provided an innovative response to the need for appropriate housing typologies for the elderly within our established suburbs.

As the flyer reveals, a diverse range of speakers from across the private and public sectors will also be speaking on the day.
