"On behalf of the Irish Presidency of the EU and the Irish Government, I have great pleasure in welcoming you all to Dublin for this EU Summit on Active and Healthy Ageing. The Irish Presidency is pleased to have this important event included in our Presidency calendar. I thank the joint organisers - the Ageing Well Network and the Global Coalition on Ageing in collaboration with the European Innovation Partnership for hosting this event in Dublin and for bringing together such a broad spectrum of private and public sector experts, academics, civic leaders and practitioners at all levels in the field of active and healthy ageing. ...."
The focus is on how collaborative planning involving key stakeholder groups can improve the quality of life of older adults and make our towns and neighbourhoods great places in which to grow old.

'I applaud the Ageing Well Network on the release of the New Agenda on Ageing report. It is comprehensive, thoughtful, and clear. Its messages are sophisticated and progressive but not over-stated. The report will be a tremendous resource, because it distills and synthesizes findings from across the many disciplines that underpin the emerging field of ageing. It's truly a tour de force and will be a terrific resource for both aspiring specialists and established professionals throughout the world.'
