Stakeholder Group on Ageing submits position paper on SDG11 to United Nations

Silvia Perel-Levin, the Geneva representative of the Global Alliance of ILCs and Ina Voelcker of ILC-BR represent the ILC-GA in the research and analysis subcommittee of the Stakeholder Group on Ageing. The subcommittee was responsible for developing a position paper on Goal 11 “Inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and human settlements” in preparation of the High-Level Political Forum held at the United Nations in July this year. ILC-BR’s Ina Voelcker drafted a paper on the conceptual background and the age-friendly cities movement, which served as a basis for the position paper. The paper was submitted by the Stakeholder Group on Ageing (SGA), which brings together ten global and national networks of organizations concerned with issues of ageing, representing 800 million older women and men in all regions of the world. The SGA was established in 2013.
