The Debating Matters 'Changing Age' event is a joint initiative with Newcastle University and its Institute for Ageing and Health.

A unique day of debate and discussion

This project builds on the work of the Academy of Ideas’ Debating Matters Competition, supported by Pfizer and the Wellcome Trust since its inception. The day of debate and discussion, involving eight schools from across the North East of England, will consider the contemporary issue of ageing from a scientific, medical and social context.

Thursday 29 April 2010

Changing Age: medical, moral and social debates about ageing

King's Road Centre, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7RU. For more information contact Debating Matters

Students getting to grips with the issues

Centring around student debates on two key themes – expanding the human lifespan and the issue of older mums – the schools taking part will debate each other as well as have the opportunity to listen to, challenge, and be challenged by, eminent guest speakers and debate judges.
