Last year the World Health Organisation launched the the Global Network of Age-friendly Cities as part of a broader response to the rapid ageing of populations. Scores of cites and communities have now signed up to the project and this year Dublin played host to the First International Conference on Age-friendly Cities: Building the WHO Global Network.
The conference brought together a broad range of senior managers from municipal authorities across the world, including those not yet involved with the WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities. The conference programme was built around three main themes: Social and Cultural Connectivity, Built Environment and Building Momentum for the WHO Global Age-friendly Cities initiative.
