The Through Their Eyes project participants at Brock University worked in conjunction with various partner organizations to make Through Their Eyes possible. Information and data gathered from the project will be used by a number of affiliated community partners to inform initiatives to promote active aging and improve the age-friendliness of the Niagara region. The Through Their Eyes project benefitted from the support of its informal consultants with expertise in the domains of city life (see image to right) that influence the health and quality of life of citizens in the region.
