Cáritas Coimbra and SHAFE are partners in organizing a workshop on European Week of Regions and Cities
Cáritas Coimbra and the European Network SHAFE (Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments) are partners in the organization of the workshop “Healthy ageing in cities and regions: inspiring examples to frame the future” that will take place on 9 October 2019, during the European Week of Regions and Cities, at The Square – Mont des Arts, Brussels.
Europe is ageing. Action is needed at all governance levels to review the way our society is organized and create a fair and sustainable society for all ages.
The workshop will uncover why some ageing policies have been more successful than others and help cities and regions tap into the potential that older people present while also overcoming some of the constraints and challenges that urban environments often pose on older residents.
This workshop will take its participants through inspiring examples on how to enhance healthy ageing and develop age-friendly cities and communities. It will also be an opportunity to discuss the success factors and barriers as well as to provide local and regional authorities with recommendations.
