Urban Ageing


Our working group on urban ageing wants to raise awareness and improve strategies for age-friendly environments in cities.

Objectives for 2017 are:

  • Share good practices on active and healthy ageing

  • Develop links and collaboration with other relevant networks, including the WHO age-friendly cities network, the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA) and the Covenant on Demographic Change

  • Influence the EU policy on active and healthy ageing

  • Focus on themes of ICT solutions for active ageing, universal design and empowerment of older citizens
