The PHE Life Course team and partner the Centre for Ageing Better are pleased to announce the ‘Launch of the Healthy Ageing Consensus Statement’ webinar, on 16th October 2019, 15:00 to 16:00pm.

This webinar sets out a shared ambition for current and future generations to achieve a healthier later life, making England the best place in the world to grow older through:

  • Putting prevention first
  • Creating opportunities for people as they age to make a contribution to society

  • Narrowing inequalities
  • Challenging ageist and negative language, culture and practices

You are invited to this webinar to hear about the principles of the consensus statement and to join a discussion on how we can collectively translate this into practice.

What is a webinar?

A webinar is an online seminar. You will usually need a computer that is connected to the internet, and a telephone. You will see PowerPoint slides presented on your computer screen, and there is usually an opportunity to type in a ‘chat’ box at the side of the screen if you have any questions. In order to hear the presenter and participants, you can either phone in to the meeting, or request that the meeting automatically phones you, which is free, even to a mobile. You hear the meeting audio over your phone, like a conference call, while watching your screen. You can usually ask questions or make comments if you want to, but you don’t have to if you want to just listen.
