SURFACE - Inclusive Design Research Centre

Go Far impact highlighted at Lifelong Health and Wellbeing showcase

Thursday 7 November 2013

SURFACE collaborator, Prof Catharine Ward Thompson of the University of Edinburgh, has highlighted the impact of Go Far at the latest Lifelong Health and Wellbeing (LLHW) showcase.

The three-day event brought together researchers and stakeholders involved in research funded by LLHW, the major cross-council programme addressing the challenges and opportunities of an ageing population.

Catharine spoke during the session on ‘translating research’, chaired by Professor David Armstrong, which focused on work already completed under LLHW and its subsequent impact on policy and practice.

As well as working with SURFACE on Go Far, specifically on the development of an audit tool for the outdoor environment, Catharine is the former Director of the Inclusive Design for Getting Outdoors (I'DGO) consortium.
