Roadmap to improve the health and wellbeing of the ageing populations (AgeFLAG)
The AgeFLAG seed money project focused on challenges and needs of the ageing populations in the Baltic Sea Region. The topic of active and healthy ageing is more important today than ever before. Approximately a fifth of the population in Northern Europe and the Baltic Sea Region is aged 65 and over. Maximising the healthy years for all into old age is a cornerstone into prosperous and flourishing societies.
The aim of the AgeFLAG -project was to contribute to the health and wellbeing of older adults and to make our societies inclusive. With over 200 individuals from the Baltic Sea Region contributing, we held seven national needs assessments, identified four regional priority areas for further action, and generated numerous creative ideas for transnational activities. The roadmap produced through this process presents the first steps towards establishing the NDPHS as a thought leader on healthy ageing.
The AgeFLAG seed money project was funded by the Swedish Institute and the German Ministry of Health.
