Creating age-friendly cities in the Nordic Region

23 April 2019

Ten cities and communities in the Nordic region are currently Members of the Global Network for age-friendly cities and communities. A meeting held last year, 15-16 October 2018, in Stockholm provided an important opportunity for these cities and others to meet, exchange and discuss how to strengthen and expand their age-friendly work. In follow up to this meeting the Nordic Council of Ministers, which supports co-operation across Nordic countries (i.e. Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland) has started to develop a Nordic network of age-friendly cities and communities. This work is coordinated by the Nordic Welfare Centre under the leadership of Ann Jönsson.
