CLAIR Forum in Adelaide, 6 October 2004

Forum presents international perspective on
LG responses to ageing communities
Local government and ageing communities come under the spotlight at tomorrow's 2004 Council of Local Authorities for International Relations (CLAIR) Forum at the Adelaide Town Hall.
The event, hosted by CLAIR's Sydney office, provides an international perspective on local government responses to ageing communities and will feature speakers from Australia, Japan and South Korea.
CLAIR is a Japanese semi-government organisation supporting international co-operation between local governments in Japan and their counterparts overseas. The half-day CLAIR Forum is specially timed to immediately precede the LGA of South Australia's Conference on 7 and 8 October.
"Adaptation to an ageing society is increasingly a focus for many Australian communities, with all levels of government recognising the need to address this issue. Japan faces similar problems and has been developing strategies to cope with its ageing population at the local level for some time," said CLAIR Sydney's research coordinator, Claire Wallom.
"At the Adelaide Forum, we hope to provide an opportunity to examine these differing models and to exchange knowledge and experience."
Further Forum information can be obtained from CLAIR's website at www.jlgc.org.au.
