EURAGE member Ruth Lamont attended the July 2013 conference ‘Ageing and physical activity: Rethinking approaches’ where international researchers and policy makers discussed the role of physical activity in later life. Cassandra Phoenix and Noreen Orr demonstrated the narrative approach to encouraging active living with the ESRC funded ‘Moving Stories Project’. Diane Whaley discussed inter-group and intra-group diversity in later life and the deficient grouping of people as ‘older adults’ within research. Emanuelle Tulle highlighted how our social location can determine what activities we do and don’t engage with, and more specifically examined how master athletes have overcome/changed these boundaries. The two day conference delivered a number of stimulating talks and opportunities for discussion.
