Workshop: Healthy ageing in cities and regions - inspiring examples to frame the future

European Week of Regions and Cities, Brussels, 7-10 October 2019

Workshop co-organised by ESPON, the European Covenant on Demographic Change and the JA ADVANTAGE 

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. It 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.
