Event Details

Your Guide to an Age Friendly Victoria 

The COTA Vic 2014 Statewide Seniors Conference is a key event for 
older Victorians, and organisations with an interest in issues that impact on older people.

The aim of the 2014 conference is to advance an age friendly Victoria in the face of age discrimination. The conference will explore the experience of older people striving to improve their diverse local communities and age friendly ambassadors from across the state are invited to share stories and strategies, with a focus on ‘what works’?

The Keynote speaker is Grace Chan, Asia/Pacific Regional Vice President, International Federation on Ageing, and Chief Officer of the Hong Kong Council of Social Service.  Grace has a wealth of experience in global age friendly initiatives and international developments around ageing. COTA is committed to empowering a diverse voice of older Victorian’s and Grace will also deliver one of our workshops in Mandarin - don’t miss out if that is your preferred language.

Our panel discussion will include Grace Chan, Commissioner Kate Jenkins (Victorian Equal Opportunities and Human Rights Commission) and older Victorians actively challenging discrimination in local communities.. If you have questions you would like considered for the panel, email them to mjordan@cotavic.org.au

Finally, a choice of workshops aims to offer a diverse range of topics:

  • Creating Sustainable Communities Local initiatives in co-housing Katherine Barling and Mary Springer (from Transition Banyule & Banyule co-housing project) will share their knowledge on co-housing, multi-generational and sustainable housing projects occurring in Victoria.
  • Connecting rural communities – overcoming health barriers: How can communities be age friendly in the face of fundamental barriers to health services?
  • Age friendly - stories from the grassroots
  • Age friendly for Chinese communities
