Tue, 13 Mar 2018 - Wed, 14 Mar 2018
08:00 - 17:00

Dublin City University became the first third-level institution to adopt the concept and principles of an Age-Friendly University in 2012 and has committed to lead and highlight the role that universities can play in responding to challenges and opportunities associated with the ageing demographic of the 21st century.

In collaboration with our international partners in education representing Europe, North America, Canada, and South Korea we are hosting the second international age-friendly universities conference in March 2018.

This event will bring together institutes of higher education, policymakers, government and civic society to share, debate and explore new frontiers of ageing across a broad range of themes.

The Keynote address will be given by Prof. Alexandre Kalache, a former Director of the World Health Organisation’s global Ageing and Life Course Programme from the Geneva headquarters. During his thirteen years at WHO he launched the Active Ageing Policy Framework and the global movement on Age-Friendly Cities among many other enduring initiatives.
