From 2-4 October 2017, The Hague, the first city in the Netherlands to join the WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities, will be hosting the Age-friendly Cities Conference The Hague on innovation, health and active ageing. As city council we work closely with our residents, volunteers and businesses to create the ideal environment to promote the vitality, independence and social engagement of the people of The Hague. We drive this process in part with the use of technology and other innovations.
This conference will give you the opportunity to share ideas and experiences relating to age-friendly cities and innovations in healthcare with participants from all around the world. The main themes of the conference: diversity, participation, accessibility, ageing, vitality and ICT, will be addressed by several keynote speakers and in a number of workshops. The workshops and seminars will be organised at various locations throughout The Hague where you will be able to see and experience first-hand how the city is making itself age-friendly.
