During this conference, older people’s associations and academics organise a Joint Forum of Civil Society and Scientific Research on 15 June. Under the title “A fulfilling life throughout the life-course: A joint effort of civil society and research in policy making”, this Joint Forum will deal with issues connected to the Ministerial Conference’s topics, namely: active and healthy ageing throughout life; equal access to long-term care; support to families and carers; age mainstreaming to advance a society for all ages.
Call for videos on civil society involvement
The Joint Forum is launching a video competition to give a voice to older people, their organisations, and research organisations involving older persons.
In no longer than 3 minutes, the videos should show their work to promote active ageing and well-being in older age. The 10 most interesting videos will be selected by a jury and screened during the Forum and Ministerial Conference.
The videos should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 March 2022 (deadline extended)
