Where and How We Age
The key topic of the Conference is the Environment for Ageing. What issues we face as we become older? How can we impact the environment in order to make it age-friendly and to ensure that the natural ageing process provides opportunity for self-actualization and active longevity as opposed to exclusion from the society?
The conference participants will debate on overcoming various hurdles and utilizing resources from an elderly person’s immediate environment — his or her family, home town, community. We will address the issues related to public attitude to the elderly and their self-awareness, the national welfare policy to the benefit of the elderly citizens. The conference participants from different countries and regions of Russia will share their expertise, hands-on experience and initiatives on how to shape the environment that promotes dignified ageing.
