2012 World Congress on Active Aging

8th International Coalition for Aging and Physical Activity's World Congress on Active Aging

Glasgow, Scotland, will be the host of the 8th International Coalition for Aging and Physical Activity’s World Congress on Active Aging (WCAA). Glasgow Caledonian University has teamed up with the BHF National Centre for Physical Activity and Health at Loughborough University to put on this fantastic event.


The WCAA provides an opportunity for active aging practitioners and researchers to share the latest research findings in the area of ageing and physical activity. It will also introduce cutting-edge methods on developing, implementing, and evaluating physical activity programs for older people. This Congress will attract a worldwide community of researchers, policy makers, and practitioners, and is the principal professional meeting in the world that strives to disseminate information about the physical activity needs of older people.
