Second International Seminar on the Active Ageing Index

UNECE, the European Commission's DG EMPL, the University of the Basque Country, the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, with the support of the Government of Biscay (Spain), held a Second International Seminar on the Active Ageing Index in Bilbao in September 2018. The seminar brought together researchers, civil society representatives, policymakers and other stakeholders and provided a multidisciplinary forum for those interested in the use of AAI to enhance the knowledge about ageing and older people and lead to the development of better policies.

The seminar was dedicated to the studies focusing on the use of AAI to identify ways to improve active ageing outcomes through appropriate policy measures at different levels.

The Active Ageing Index (AAI), first developed during the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations in 2012, offers a multi-faceted and flexible framework that provides evidence for informed decision-making, development, and monitoring of policies and strategies on ageing at national and subnational levels.
