ILC Canada at Age Boom
ILC Canada Research Director Dr. Louise Plouffe spoke at the Age Boom Academy at Columbia University. In conjunction with the Robert N. Butler Columbia Aging Center, Age Boom was centred on dramatic demographic shifts around the world and the myths that accompany them. Her talk was centred on the myth that cities are for young people only, and related it to Age Friendly Cities protocol which she helped pioneer. Other speakers for the event included Ruth Finkelstein and Ursula Staudinger of the Columbia Aging Center, Linda Fried of the Mailman School of Public Health, John Beard from the World Health Organization and Maurizio Bussolo of The World Bank.
