First international age-friendly cities conference
28-30 September 2011 -- Dublin, Ireland
The First International Conference on Age-friendly Cities took place in Dublin, Ireland, from 28 to 30 September 2011, to strengthen the WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and advance thinking and approaches on how to make cities more age-friendly. It brought together a broad range of leaders and senior managers from existing members of the Global Network, senior managers of municipal authorities, CEOs interested in or already championing an Age-friendly City initiative, civil society organizations, older persons, as well as senior professionals across the public, private and voluntary sectors in areas such as transport, urban planning, health care, housing, research and academia.
A participant survey was taken during the event and round table discussions were conducted -- the outcome from these activities will help drive the future of the network.
