Estonian Cooperation Assembly will draw interim conclusions on the results and lessons learned so far of the People’s Assembly on the Future of Ageing – a deliberation process that started in March 2017.

On one hand the People’s Assembly has been a way of leading the public debate on ageing society and the societal changes needed for adapting. On the other hand, it has been a broad engagement process to find solutions for lifelong learning and working, healthy and happy old age.

The seminar will serve as an interim assessment on the success of the People’s Assembly process. The seminar is meant for policy-makers, experts and authors of proposals in the assembly process, to journalists and anyone interested in the topic.

As an inspirational speaker, we have invited prof. Rudi Westendorp, who is a world-known advocate and well-published scientist of active ageing and vitality.
