Age-Friendly World Website - World Health Organization

Published

the World Heath Organiszation (WHO) has launched a key strategy known as Age-Friendly World to make communities more age-friendly. The idea is to enable people of all ages to actively participate in community activities, and remain connected to people around them, families and friends in order to stay healthy and active regardless of age.


Many cities and communities are already taking active steps towards becoming more age-friendly by creating accessible, barrier-free, inclusive and cohesive communities for all ages.  A new dedicated website, Age-Friendly World, supports them in this endeavour by providing a one-stop-shop on age-friendly action at the local level: guides and tools, as well as age-friendly practices and information on hundreds of city and community initiatives around the world.
 
Browse the Age-Friendly World website to learn more about what can be done to make your city or communities more age-friendly. http://agefriendlyworld.org/en/
