Join the EU age-friendly environments network
Using the opportunity offered by the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Health Ageing (EIP AHA), AGE Platform Europe is committed to set up a virtual network on age-friendly environments mobilising stakeholders at local and regional level. This network will build on the work done by World Health Organisation (WHO) to adapt guidelines on age-friendly environment to the European context, facilitate the exchange of information on EU policy dossiers and instruments relevant to age-friendliness. In addition, AGE Platform Europe will advocate making this network concrete through the launch of a Covenant of Mayors on ageing and thus making possible the implementation at local level of strategies to improve active and healthy ageing.
AGE Platform Europe is organising a consortium of stakeholders, along with the WHO, with the aim of submitting a joint commitment in response to the European Commission's call for commitment to making Europe an age-friendly environment.
