Community Open Doors Day: Bridging generations in an inclusive society

18 Mar ‘17

10.00AM - 10.45AM

Venue: Iris Murdoch building, University of Stirling


The Faculty of Social Sciences invites you to a talk on some of the most pressing issues of our age.  What should we do about our ageing population, child protection challenges and social inequality?

Join us for a programme of short talks with leading academics and researchers from the Faculty of Social Sciences:

  • Professor Alison Bowes, Dean of Faculty on ageing and dementia.
  • Dr Paul Rigby on Child Protection.
  • Dr Alasdair Rutherford on social inequality and statistics.

Our Community Open Doors Day aims to bring every part of the campus alive by inviting the local community in to join us in celebrating the anniversary. The programme includes: engaging talks; a Science Fair in the Atrium; a chance to explore the history of the University through the Archives; participation in a series of fun activities; and an adaptation of the daily mile challenge to tie the events and activities together. 

This event is open to all and is free to attend but places should be booked in advance. Please book online here
