AGE was invited by Toerismevlanderen to present its work in the field of senior tourism at the workshop ‘Toerisme met een zilveren randje‘ held in Northern Belgium on 18th April 2016.

AGE is promoting an age-friendly tourism, which means a tourism meeting the needs and wishes of European seniors and allowing them to enjoy their freedom of movement without any barrier.
