The Programme on Ageing Urbanism aims to bring together a pluri-disciplinary research programme to study population ageing and the city. Ageing is one of the major challenges faced by Singapore and cities around the world. Yet, comparatively little research has been conducted on ageing in the development sphere. This research will analyse and enhance the current understanding of older people’s appropriation and needs in the city, develop innovative designs and solutions to meet those needs, and disseminate theoretically rich but practical and context-specific frameworks for action.
