The project ‘Adapting European Cities to Population Ageing‘ (ACPA), which came to en end in the first half of 2020, aimed to support European cities that are developing and implementing age-friendly programmes. The project investigated the effectiveness of policies and initiatives to develop age-friendly cities and initiatives that support “ageing in place” in eight cities and city-regions.
In the frame of this project, the EU ESPON programme has issued a new policy brief The ageing revolution: towards a European Silver Deal?. The objective of this policy brief is to inform European, national, regional and urban authorities about success factors for age-friendly territories. It also aims to support the WHO Decade of Healthy Ageing by providing evidence of successful policies and good practices that contribute to healthy and inclusive ageing in cities.
