We have the perfect venue and now we have a brand new programme too! It has been created choosing among the numerous calls we received last summer. There could still be some adjustments to its structure, but the overall themes are all set.
The Forum will start on Monday 10th May with the opening ceremony. Two very intense days will follow in which we will explore every aspect related to healthy ageing, from digital storytelling supporting intergenerational solidarity to the latest technology trends and digital solutions for the healthcare sector.
Indeed, all our workshops will focus around some of the main topics of the Decade of Healthy Ageing – a proposal endorsed by the WHO in 2020 – such as:
– build a platform for innovation and change;
– align healthcare systems with the changing needs of an ageing population;
– promote intergenerational solidarity;
– make the socio-economic case for impact investment into healthy ageing.
Given the very particular situation we are experiencing due to the worldwide COVID-19 epidemic, our will to guarantee to all the stakeholders the possibility of access to the contents of the Forum has led to provide for the AAL Forum 2021 a hybrid formula of participation: part of the event will be managed, as well as in the presence, online, through the use of a virtual platform.
We look forward to seeing you on May in Trieste, Italy, for great discussions and exchange of ideas.
