WHO / IFA Webinar – “Aging2.0: Improving experiences for older people through technology and innovation”
The latest WHO / IFA webinar, “Aging2.0: Improving Experiences For Older People Through Technology and Innovation” was presented by Mr. Stephen Johnston, co-founder and CEO of Aging2.0 on August 8, 2017. The webinar, the fourth in a series of webinars on age-friendly environments (AFE), garnered substantial interest, with participants asking questions and providing feedback, which is central to creating links between innovation, technology, and age-friendly environments.
This webinar highlighted the influx of technology that is currently being designed for and marketed to older people, and discussed the varying ways in which these innovations can help shape ideas of healthy ageing, and be integrated into age-friendly environments.
Handouts for the webinar can be found here and the recording for the webinar can be viewed below.
This series of webinars is a part of the IFA’s ongoing commitment to exchanging information and knowledge on age-friendly environments. The IFA continues to develop additional age-friendly initiatives such as:
- An IFA age-friendly e-newsletter with a Q & A forum (building on the questions which are asked during the webinars);
- Encouraging contributions of good practice, lessons learned and solutions to barriers for the newsletter;
- Additional webinars, including the 5th WHO / IFA Webinar on innovation in age-friendly environments to be held in October 2017 (More information to follow).
