The European Week of Active and Healthy Ageing will be held in Trieste, Italy from 10-12 May 2021 in collaboration with its member Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and the Fondazione Internazionale. In the midst of the global outbreak of COVID-19, especially affecting our older populations in Europe, we are proud to announce that this event will take place in the north of Italy.
This is a joint initiative of the AAL Programme, EIP on AHA & JPI MYBL whose overall objective is to foster a more comprehensive European vision on active and healthy ageing while bringing forward the contributions of AAL, EIP on AHA and JPI MYBL for a continued R&D agenda on active & healthy ageing.
The event will take inspiration from the Decade of Healthy Ageing launched by the WHO in 2020, in order to discuss and exchange on key active & healthy ageing priorities for a collective and collaborative approach in Europe.
It will touch upon some of the main topics put forward by WHO, such as:
- How to build a platform for innovation and change;
- Align Healthcare systems with the needs of an ageing population;
- Intergenerational Solidarity;
- Make the socio-economic case for impact investment into healthy ageing.
More information and registration coming soon.
