Big news in sight for AAL Forum – new dates for an all-digital version

This past year has put a strain on our lives and questioned established habits – the global health crisis has jeopardised every face-to-face event planned for this period – but it was also an opportunity to give a boost to embrace the digital revolution. The first reflection of this new approach is our decision to move the AAL Forum 2021 entirely online to ensure everyone’s safety. It will take place officially between 18 and 20 October, as the main event of the II edition of the European Week of Active and Healthy Ageing (EWAHA), from 18 to 22 October. The first edition of the European Week of Active and Healthy Ageing, organized by the AAL Programme jointly with the EIPA AHA...

Focusing on the second half of life, the plan outlines key principles, strategies and actions that...

Trieste, a city where people age well and healthy

TRIESTE, is the capital of Friuli Venezia Giulia, a region in the heart of Europe, easy to reach by any means. With a striking and varied landscape that transforms multiple times within a radius of a hundred kilometers.

The crossroads of culture that animate this Julian regional capital are expressed through a rich and extremely varied...
