Ageing and the occurence are influenced by various lifestyle factors. As life happens in a context (environment) the way and extend biological systems are exposed to external stressors will influence outcomes. In this interdisciplinary symposium two lectures will focus on external ("Air pollution, ageing and disease") and on internal exposure ("Indoor pollution, ageing and disease") to stressors. The third lecture ("Environment and physical activity") will focus on environmental factors which are able to foster or to hinder mobility and exercise and thus, will influence outcomes too.
