Melbourne

Aghhhhh, Our best laid plans. We have always had schedule challenges with our numerous time zones. In this case West Coast USA, Europe, Singapore and Australia was just a link to much....Now the good news.... I am pleased that the speakers will be involved in individual upcoming events, but today we will have special insights into the 125+ chapters that make up Aging2.0 and their approaches to one of our Grand Challenge of Social Isolation. Stephen Johnson and I will lead an interactive session mapping and sharing the global view matched against some of the local activities.

Elissa Reid will also join us from Australian success story Contact Harald, to share care site options and insights around contact tracing that doesn’t rely on personal mobile devices.


The original session........

Globally isolation and loneliness has taken on increased relevance in 2020. Siok Siok Tang is an international documentary film maker that is dealing with intergenerational stories as part of solutions to tackle isolation and new media “silos”. She will share first hand experience around enabling a “sense of power in ageing” and the limits and benefits of media in the region.

Locally Matiu Bush, founder One Good Street, Clinical Lead in the Health and Care sector (BallyCara and BetterCare Vic. Board Member, Dept of Justice and Community Services, Deakin: Institute for Health Transformation) will share the inspirations behind “One Good Street”. A Social enterprise that enables local residents to support their local senior neighbours at scale yet “one street at a time”.

Elissa Reid will also join us from Australian success story Contact Harald, to share care site options and insights around contact tracing that doesn’t rely on personal mobile devices.
