What to expect

In recognition of a decade of mission-led, impact-driven, and equity-focused kaupapa, we will be hosting a diverse range of speakers.

We have released the programme for the event, with the event arranged around four themes:

  • Equitable ageing
  • Holistic wellbeing
  • Policy and advocacy
  • Resilience in ageing

Day 1

The first day features a mihi whakatau, the keynote presentation from Dr Ganesh Nana, and the first of our themed sessions with the Policy and Advocacy panel.

Following lunch and time for networking, the afternoon session will feature presentations from our Early Career Researchers, our Tiriti Journey story, and the launch of the new Ageing Well book. It ends with a recap of some of the key points of discussion from the day.

Day 2

Day two opens with our theme Māori and Pacific Leadership in Ageing Well Research which features Ageing Well researchers, community researchers, and community partners.

The afternoon kicks off the Health and Wellbeing part of the programme, and ends with the Resilience in Ageing panel that looks towards the future for ageing in Aotearoa.



We look forward to seeing you next week on April 10 and 11 in Wellington!
