Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Bi-weekly; Week 1; Monday; 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Location: Tartu (G1)

We all want to live long lives—with one caveat—as long as we can live well. In this broad-based course, we will explore what the elements of ‘living well’ are as we age. As this large demographic moves forward, what are the implications for how we live? From options for housing and ways cities can be reconfigured, to our unique nutritional and fitness needs to support an active physical and mental life, this course will explore cutting edge innovations and science as well  as alternative approaches such as meditation, humour, socialisation and even forest bathing!

Each participant will present on a topic related to health and wellness. The topics are endless! Weather permitting we may even find time for a walk in the woods.


Carol Austin worked for the pharmaceutical industry. She joined the Academy in 2020 and is looking forward to another exciting year of intellectual discussion on a variety of topics.

Priscilla Platt has been a member of the Academy for four years. Priscilla has been a life-long fitness and health enthusiast. After retiring from her career as a lawyer she became a certified Pilates instructor and has been leading fitness classes ever since.
