Guardado en: Aging and health • Publicado el 30/06/2015 • Comentarios: 0


The Covenant on Demographic Change will engage local and regional authorities, and other relevant stakeholders, committed to develop environments that support active and healthy ageing and contribute to increase the healthy life expectancy, enhance independent living and well-being of older persons and create a society for all ages. It will closely cooperate and build on existing initiatives such as the WHO Global Network on Age-Friendly Cities and Communities, the WHO-Europe Healthy City Network, the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing, in the spirit of the 2013 Dublin Declaration on Age-Friendly Cities and Communities in Europe.
The Covenant on Demographic Change will be launched on 7 December 2015 at the Committee of the Regions (Brussels), with the support of the European Commission and the AFE-INNOVNET Thematic Network. The following two days, 8 and 9 December, workshops will be organised to support local and regional authorities in developing and implementing an action plan on age-friendly environments.
