The Master Class is offered by the Global Social Issues on Ageing (GSIA), a core activity of the IAGG, the mission of which is to build capacity and create knowledge on international issues arising from population ageing. The 2017 Master Class on Population Ageing and Liveable Environments of Older Persons was offered in conjunction with the IAGG World Congress held in San Francisco, July 23, 2017. This third Master Class included a series of presentations by senior international scholars with expertise in Liveability who mentored the Early Career Scholar (ECS) participants throughout the Master Class and IAGG World Congress. Mentors and ECS (shown in the photo) came from all over the world to participate in the 2017 Master Class: Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Scotland, South Korea and the USA.
Previous Master Classes included Population Ageing and the Challenges of Integrating Paid Work and Family Care Work (IAGG European Region 2015 Dublin); and Families, Ageing and Care (IAGG Africa Region 2016 Nairobi).
