The aim of AFE-INNOVNET is to set up a large EU wide community of local and regional authorities and other relevant stakeholders across the EU who want to work together to find smart and innovative evidence based solutions to support active and healthy ageing and develop age-friendly environments across the EU.
Project activities include:
- Mobilising a wide range of local and regional authorities and other stakeholders (industry, SME, academic, civil society) to work together to promote initiatives on age-friendly environments across the EU.
- Developing methodologies to help local and regional authorities to assess the socio-economic impact of age-friendly environments.
- Developing a repository of notable and replicable practices in ICT and services and facilitate pilot projects.
- Launching an EU Covenant on Demographic Change to create a framework to ensure a more formal and long-term movement towards age-friendly environments. Local and regional authorities will be mobilised to join. The covenant is inspired by the existing covenant on sustainable energy.
