Healthy ageing in cities & regions: inspiring examples to frame the future - workshop


Europe is ageing. Action is needed at all governance levels to review the way our society is organized and create a fair and sustainable society for all ages. The workshop will uncover why some ageing policies have been more successful than others and help cities and regions tap into the potential that older people present while also overcoming some of the constraints and challenges that urban environments often pose on older residents. After an opening speech by Markku Markkula, First Vice-President of the Committee of the Regions, this workshop will take its participants through inspiring examples on how to enhance healthy ageing and develop age-friendly cities and communities. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the success factors and barriers as well as to provide local and regional authorities with recommendations.
