January 216 - International Perspectives on Aging: Towards an age-friendly EU

The publication 'Age-Friendly Cities and Communities in International Comparison' includes an interview with Anne-Sophie Parent and Julia Wadoux, AGE Platform Europe: "Toward an age-friendly European Union" (p. 247). This section describes "how, together with an increasingly large group of stakeholders, this advocacy group for EU citizens aged 50+ has introduced the concept of age-friendly environments developed by the World Health Organisation Global Network of Age-Friendly Cities and Communities in relevant policies and funding instruments of the European Union to support active and healthy ageing in Europe. As a result of this civil society initiative, the concept of age-friendly environments is now high on the European Union's policy and research agenda".
