The online European Week of Active & Healthy Ageing (EWAHA) will be organised in the first week of November 2020, from 2nd to 6th by the Active Assisted Living (AAL) Programme, the EIP on AHA (European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing) and the Joint Programming Initiative More Years, Better Lives (JPI MYBL).
Objective of the initiative is to support Europe’s adaptations to an ageing society looking forward into the future ten years until 2030. This decade is a real opportunity to focus on healthy ageing and demographic change.
This online week is full of innovative and varied debates and panels. It will feature a series of discussions and webinars. The direction will be about priorities and strategies, but also action. There will be plenty of participation from high-profile thought leaders from international bodies, members of the European Parliament, and a range of other policy makers and experts on health, care and ageing. Expect to see leaders from many countries and regions throughout Europe. Financing, investment, and the roles of demand and supply will also feature. A special session will present participants from the AAL Smart Ageing Prize who will showcase the successes of entrepreneurs in the healthy ageing domain. Other award schemes and exciting new developments are also anticipated.
