November 13th from 8:30 to 13:30

In an age-friendly city, policies, services,
environments and structures support and facilitate
the active ageing of people.
(OMS, 2002)


Euskadi Lagunkoia”  is a project of the Department of Employment and Social Policies of the Basque Government in collaboration with Matia Instituto, which is aimed at promoting participation of citizens as well as the public, private and social sector to develop a movement to foster age-friendly living environments. This initiative is based on the “Age-friendly Environments Programme” promoted by the World Health Organisation.

At the present time more than 60 cities and towns throughout the Basque Country are members of this Network and more than 800 are in the world Network of the WHO.

The III Conference “Good European Age-Friendliness Practices” is part of this project.
