The education component has three main aspects—courses taught by core faculty in the project covering the links between health and places, courses on relevant topics offered by Harvard Extension School, and seminars and events related to healthy aging in Chinese places. A proposal for a conference in Shanghai  is also underway. Overall it aims to both increase interdisciplinary communication within Harvard and offer opportunities for those outside Harvard to gain access to emerging conversations about the connection between health and place, aging and urbanization, the Chinese case and global perspectives.
