Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces organizes event on Active Ageing

The conference, organized by the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces and entitled “Keys for active and healthy ageing: best practice examples from municipalities” (original title in Spanish: Claves para un envejecimiento activo y saludable: experiencias municipales de éxito), aimed at promoting public policies, among others, through collaborations with the private sector. The best practice examples presented by several municipalities stimulated discussion among scientists, policy-makers and the private sector. New ways of advancing age-friendly cities and communities were discussed, with a focus on innovation, research and technology. Alexandre Kalache delivered the opening key note on “A New Reality linked to ageing: consequences and challenges”.
