SDG 3 and Senior Citizens: ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages
Tuesday, 23 May 2017, 16:00 - 17:30
UNOG Library Events Room B-135
Palais des Nations, Geneva
Agenda 2030’s Goal 3 calls for healthy lives and well-being for all at all ages. It is a known fact that the median age of world population continues to increase, so how do we create inclusive societies that provide the environment to adequately support and benefit from ageing populations? And how can we ensure that senior citizens can continue to contribute actively to our societies? For this Library Talk, we have brought together experts in public health, psychology, public policy and urban governance to delve into these and other questions.
Come listen to the presentations and join the debate on a matter of concern for all of us … sooner or later.
