The Riverside Show - How to Get to 100 and Enjoy It

The Riverside Show - How to Get to 100 and Enjoy It | ESRC press coverage | Scoop.it

In research, the significant issues affecting every person's life are often hidden behind abstract figures like the number of births, the mortality rate, or net migration. The exhibition presents the latest results of population research in an easy-to-understand format, with the aim of raising awareness among interested non-scientific audiences of the pressing issues surrounding demographic change.

ESRC's insight:

The programme included an interview with Teresa McGowan and Genna West on the Centre for Population Change's (CPC) 'How to Get to 100 and Enjoy It' exhibition (43:14 - 46:35). The exhibition is travelling around the UK until 4 December. From the 29 October to 2 November as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science the exhibition was held at the Gallery@OXO in London.
