A global future where every community and city is Age-Friendly; in an ideal future, older people will flourish and thrive within communities and cities that are vital, vibrant and richly reflect successful fulfillment of the World Health Organization’s eight age-friendly-city domains:

  • outdoor spaces and buildings
  • transportation
  • housing
  • social participation
  • respect and social inclusion
  • civic participation and employment
  • communication and information
  • community support and health services

According to WHO, “An age-friendly environment fosters active aging by optimizing opportunities for health, participation and security in order to enhance quality of life as people age.”
