Building an evidence base for active ageing policies: Active Ageing Index and its potential
The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the European Commission's Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion (DG EMPL) are organising an International Seminar 'Building an evidence base for active ageing policies: Active Ageing Index and its potential'.
The seminar will be dedicated to the studies focusing on how to achieve better outcomes — measured, for instance, by AAI — through appropriate policies including those that address life course determinants of active and healthy ageing.
The seminar aims to bring together researchers, civil society representatives, policymakers and other stakeholders and will provide a multidisciplinary forum for those interested in the use of AAI and other research to enhance the knowledge about ageing and older people and lead to the development of better policies.
Robert Anderson, Head of unit Living Conditions and Quality of Life, will participate as well as chair a Poster session on the first day of the meeting.
