Innovation@Home: A Contest and a Call for Age-Friendly Housing Practices that Work

World Health Organisation – Age Friendly World

The WHO Global Network for Age-Friendly Cities and Communities, in collaboration with Grantmakers In Aging, is pleased to announce Innovation@Home, a competition and a call for age-friendly housing practices that can inspire action around the world by showing what can be done and how it can be done.

Cities and communities can submit innovative housing practices through the Age-friendly World website, using the Submit Your Age-friendly Practice form.

Entries are due by 4 April 2018.  Practices will be assessed by a panel of judges for relevance, replicability, strong outcomes and innovation. The top three entries will be recognized. Winners will receive free travel to the October 2018 International Technical Meeting on Ageing at Home in Quebec, Canada, where they will receive a formal award. Winning programmes will also be publicized broadly through GIA and WHO networks and publications.
