The Centre for Healthy Cities, Ageing and Citizenship is part of the Behaviour Studies Laboratory (LabCom) of Federal University of Pelotas, Brazil. Every Friday at 4 pm via GoogleMeet, Labcom promotes an informal meeting between researchers, artists, activists, communities, NGOs and everyone interested in topics that address SOCIAL INCLUSION AND WELL-BEING FOR ALL. The idea is to create a forum for the exchange of ideas and knowledge, a moment inspired by our globalized reality, to promote the inclusion and connection for all. Everybody can propose a theme for the next Cafe (and alternative meeting time to adapt to your time zone), it is just to contact our LabCom. We do not have formal meeting registrations, because the proposal is that you can click on the link of the room if you feel like it and participate without formalities.
On 20th November 2020, we had our first LabCom Cafe BREAKFAST :)) Our meeting took place at 10 am in Brazil time and at 1 pm in UK time. Professor Ryan Woolrych, from Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, brought us the debate on population ageing and the right to the city. Ryan has been working with us since 2016 when he led the PlaceAge Project with Professor Adriana Portella in the UK and Brazil. Ryan and Adriana formed this network of ageing studies in 2015 when they were invited to the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) WorkShop in London.
