Age-friendly Community and the Decade of Healthy Ageing
Other than research and evaluation, the Institute also took up an important role to transfer the AFC knowledge to the community and raise public awareness on age-friendly issues. The specific works of knowledge transfer include establishing an online resource platform “Age-friendly Port” under the JCAFC Project, providing training to older people and equip them with knowledge and skills on promoting AFC, sharing the findings of age-friendly assessments to districts stakeholders (e.g. attending the meetings of District Councils), as well as organizing public education activities to raise public knowledge and awareness on age-friendly issues (e.g. press conference, public forums).
