Age-Friendly City The Hague: Study Tour

27 September 2019

 

As part of the Erasmus+ project AFE-Activists, older people from Austria, Germany, Italy and Lithuania will visit age-friendly city The Hague from 7th to 11th October 2019.

In 2015, The Hague was the first Dutch city to join the World Health Organization Global Network on Age-friendly Cities and Communities. The aim of the study tour to The Hague is to learn more in practice what an age-friendly city could be, how to achieve this and what the processes were and to be inspired to realize likewise projects/ideas in their own country. The visiting older people are expected to actively participate, to make a report and to exchange their experiences with the older people back home.

The group will meet the alderman of The Hague for health and care Kavita Parbhudayal, professor Urban Ageing Joost van Hoof, and will visit sites such as Laakse Lente, iZi demonstration smart home, Haags Ontmoeten.

AFE Activists is coordinated by Seniors Initiative Committee from Lithuania. Partners are queraum from Austria, Lunaria from Italy, ISIS GmbH from Germany and AFEdemy BV from the Netherlands.
