This event is organised by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) in cooperation with the Government of Portugal. This year's edition will focus on "A Sustainable Society for All Ages - Realising the potential of living longer".

The conference completes the third review and appraisal cycle (2012-2017) of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its Regional Implementation Strategy (MIPAA/RIS).

Conference panels will address this theme through the lens of:

  1. Recognising the potential of older persons;
  2. Encouraging longer working life and ability to work;
  3. Ageing with dignity.

A civil society forum and a research forum will precede the Ministerial Conference on 20 September 2017.
