Abstract There is now significant research, policy development and programmes supporting age-friendly cities and the need to support ‘ageing in place’. Central to this is the need to facilitate older adults mobility, which is influenced by a complex range of factors related to inter-personal, social and physical environments. This presentation critically examines the way in which support for mobility is reflected in the concept and governance of ‘age friendly cities’, using a comparative analysis of the approaches in two cities; Belfast (UK) and Curtiba (Brazil). The presentation will draw on interviews with key stakeholders, an evaluation of best local practice and a critical analysis of policy frameworks and governance structures to provide insights on how the mobilities of older adults are supported in each city. The presentation will highlight the implications for ensuring mobility and physical activity of older adults can be more effectively facilitated by the governance of age-friendly cities.
