Hot to trot

I am writing on what we are told could be London's hottest September day in 50 years. Wherever you are reading, hopefully you found time to soak up some invigorating sunshine over the summer months and are now gearing up for a productive autumn.

There's a lot going on at the Agile Ageing Alliance (AAA). Neighbourhoods of the Future is back on the road this month, kicking off in Utrecht on the 22nd, followed by the AAL Forum in St Gallen Switzerland on the 28th.

We are also looking forward to events in Belgium, Denmark, and Poland during October as we gear up for the European Summit on Digital Innovation for Active & Healthy Ageing, (Brussels Dec 5-8) where we will share findings in relation to the EU Reference Framework for Age Friendly Homes.

More on these events next time. Today, I would like to focus on the AAL Forum. We are co-creating a really interesting programme which you can read about here. And for those who can't make it we are planning a remote facility which we will Tweet about before the event.

We have some great speakers lined up including Peter Wintlev-Jensen from the European Commission, Simon Butler, who heads up the Healthy Cities and Ageing Societies sector for Arup, the inspirational Michelle Hawkins – Head of Future's at Virgin Care, and our favourite AAA motivator Dawid Konotey-Ahulu, Director Redington Finance and Founder Partnership for Change (P4C).

In fact, for those of you who missed Dawid's excellent presentations at our Brussels and London events earlier this year, click here for a little taste of What If?

That's about it for now. I am delighted to see our group growing so quickly on LinkedIn and am very much looking forward to witnessing tangible outcomes from our collaborative efforts.

All the best
