Adapting to demographic change in Europe in the 2020s
Together, the Active Assisted Living (AAL) Programme, the EIP on AHA (European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing) and the Joint Programming Initiative More Years, Better Lives (JPI MYBL) invite you to the European Week of Active & Healthy Ageing (EWAHA) on 2-6 November, 2020.
This special initiative will look into the future ten years ahead until 2030. This decade is a real opportunity to focus on healthy ageing and demographic change. The World Health Organization (WHO) Decade of Healthy Ageing main priorities include intergenerational solidarity, and the alignment of health and care systems with the needs of ageing populations. All, and more, will be covered during this exciting initiative. It will also make sure to cover the implications for innovative capacity-building in systems and services for healthy ageing.
Of course, in 2020, it remains absolutely imperative to review the most pressing and emerging consequences of COVID-19 on Europe’s older population. Hence, this week also acts as a “warm up” event for 2021 and the Forum to be held in Trieste, Italy in May 2021.
