At the beginning of July 2020, SENSE-GARDEN presented a poster at the British Society of Gerontology (BSG) 49th Annual Conference. The poster drew upon initial findings from interviews with people with dementia and caregivers who shared their experiences of using SENSE-GARDEN.

The conference was due to take place in Bristol, United Kingdom. However, due to the ongoing pandemic concerning COVID-19, the conference took place virtually. A series of online events took place over 3 days, including symposiums, special interest group events and fringe events. More details of the online events can be read on the BSG Website. The original scientific conference programme can also be found here.

Each year, BSG awards the Stirling Prize to the best student poster. The winner of this year's prize was Arlind Reuter, whose poster presented work from The Later Life Audio and Radio Network- a participatory action research project to promote older people's voices.

SENSE-GARDEN's PhD student Gemma Goodall was selected as a runner up for the prize. The poster (pictured below) and abstract can be viewed in the scientific program.
