Age-friendly Community and the Decade of Healthy Ageing
The Institute has developed a vast variety of resources and widely distributed to cross-sectoral stakeholders (i.e. policy makers public sector and other community stakeholders) and the public, in raising their awareness on age-friendly issues and facilitating them taking forward the age-friendly city campaign in the long-run. In the following sections, we broadly categorize these resources according to their media formats (i.e., publication vs. video), and respectively give a brief summary on their contents.
