ACNEM Conference in June

The decade of 2020-2030 has been declared the Decade of Healthy Ageing, endorsed by the 73rd World Health Assembly. Populations around the world are ageing at a faster pace than in the past and already there are more than 1 billion people aged 60 years or older worldwide. The impact of this demographical transition will be felt in all aspects of society globally.

The World Health Organization defines healthy ageing as: ‘the process of developing and maintaining the functional ability that enables wellbeing in older age. Functional ability is about having the capabilities that enable all people to be and do what they have reason to value’. The WHO recognises two dimensions of functional ability: the intrinsic capacity of the individual and relevant environmental characteristics, and the interaction between them.

In the 2021 ACNEM Healthy Ageing Conference, we explore what healthy ageing is, what factors contribute to it and conversely, what might hinder it, though the lenses of ACNEM's Four Pillars of Health and the WHO’s dimensions of functional ability.

Join us for two days of presentations and workshops featuring some of the world’s leading thinkers in the arena of healthy ageing. Register your expression of interest below and be first to be notified when conference tickets go on sale.
