Nicky McDonald

Group Manager, Strategy and Communications
Nelson City Council

Nicky McDonald will be sharing the Nelson experience of developing an Age-Friendly strategy that aims to combine a bottom-up, community-led approach with the more traditional top-down local government process. The Nelson strategy takes the perspective that purposeful change will only come about through a genuine partnership between the community and local government. Nicky has been a Winston Churchill Visiting Fellow at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing and is currently a member of the Age-Friendly Aotearoa Expert Advisory Board.
