Working with Partners to Build an Age-Friendly Ecosystem
Collective Age-Friendly Impact
We are working with partners from across the Age-Friendly Ecosystem to elevate all things age-friendly and jumpstart the co-creation of shared strategies for program leaders, providers and stakeholders to plan and measure collective impact across settings.
That’s the promise of the ecosystem in all of our work.
It takes radical collaboration and intention to consider how we engage and collaborate across sectors to actively apply these concepts to benefit older adults in all settings.
Building an Age-Friendly Ecosytem: Stakeholder Convenings
The Age-Friendly Institute, together with The John A. Hartford Foundation and International Longevity Centre, hosted a series of virtual convenings to combine insights for creating and promoting a unified language and measurement strategy to support a coordinated Age-Friendly Ecosystem.
The December, 2020 and March, 2021 events involved over forty recognized leaders who are working to advance age-friendly initiatives in public health, health systems, community, academia and employment.
