9th April 2020
The EU_SHAFE consortium is composed of 10 partners representing 7 European Ecosystems, including five regions awared the Reference Sites status

The practices approach 4 from the 8 SHAFE domains defined by WHO for Age-Friendly Cities

The EU_SHAFE project has just reached its first milestone. As it starts its second semester of activities, the project delivers an Aggregated Assessment Report containing 39 good practices in Smart Healthy Age-friendly Environments (SHAFE) that were collected from the seven European ecosystems participating in the project.

The practices were collected during meetings held with local stakeholders who are carrying out relevant initiatives in SHAFE at the regional level and approach 4 from the 8 SHAFE domains defined by WHO for age-friendly cities: Housing, Social Participation, Communication and Information, and Health and Community Services. The report also contains six cross-themed practices related to methods and processes that encompass the other four themes.

Based on a ‘learning by sharing’ methodology, the EU_SHAFE aims to improve Policy Instruments and practices in SHAFE in the seven European regions involved. Therefore, the next step now will be to ask stakeholders to evaluate the practices collected from other regions and to select practices to implement in their own value chains. In addition, the project is to hold a series of interregional meetings in which the participating regions will have the chance to exchange their knowledge in SHAFE and identify room for improvement in their local related policies.
