The World Health Organisation website
The WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities was established in 2010 to connect cities, communities and organizations worldwide with the common vision of making their community a great place to grow old in. As a response to global population ageing, it focuses on action at the local level that fosters the full participation of older people in community life and promotes healthy and active ageing. Cities and communities join the Network with a commitment to becoming more age-friendly and to share their experience, achievements and lessons learnt with others. The Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities provides a global platform for information exchange, mutual learning and support.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) created this website to share information about the growing age-friendly cities and communities movement across the world. Their wish is to provide a vibrant global platform for information exchange and learning and meeting place for members of the WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities.
You can browse Age Friendly Cities in Practice for age-friendly practices implemented by cities and communities in the Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities and beyond.
WHO invite you to share with others what you are doing in your community by submitting your age-friendly practice on line and in doing so help them build a global database of age-friendly practices in cities and communities around the world.
