Many European cities are improving their age-friendliness and work in partnership with older people to create inclusive physical and social environments.  

However, there is still room for improvement, namely on these relevant cross-cutting issues:

  • Ageing and human rights
  • Participation
  • Solidarity and intergenerational cooperation
  • An integrated model of health and social care
  • Experiences of dementia-friendly cities
  • Technological and social innovation according to the opportunities of the demographic transition
  • Management of age-friendly cities.

Expected outcomes

To address those needs, the Erasmus+ funded project “AFC Toolkit – Age-Friendly City Toolkit” work on two main areas:

  1. A training curriculum meant to define a new professional profile for inclusive development in age-friendly cities, based on the partners’ identification of a set of knowledge, skills and competencies for the new professional profile of “Reference Professional for inclusive ageing in age-friendly cities”.
  2. An education toolkit for the development of age-friendly cities. According to the learning outcomes described in the training curriculum, partners develop and test a set of open educational resources through an educational app and an eLearning course.
