Creating age-friendly environments in Europe. A tool for local policy-makers and planners

This World Health Organisation (WHO) publication provides a toolbox to guide local policy-makers and planners in developing, implementing and evaluating age-friendly policies and interventions.

These policies can support people to age actively and healthily, and do the things that are important to them and to contribute to their communities.

This publication summarises key factors for establishing and sustaining successful initiatives within four phases of the policy process: engaging, planning, implementing and evaluating - with examples structured on lessons learned from existing age-friendly initiatives in Europe.
