Join ILC-UK for the launch of their upcoming report: The invisible epidemic – Rethinking the detection and treatment of structural heart disease in Europe, supported by Edwards Lifesciences.

As part of their Delivering prevention in an ageing world programme, ILC-UK are asking for input on how we can deliver prevention in an ageing world.

A new global project titled "Re-imagining Environments for Connection and Engagement: Testing Actions for Social Prescribing in Natural Spaces" (RECETAS) will address the loneliness created by the COVID-19 pandemic through interaction with nature in six cities in Europe, Latin America, and Australia.

A new project, titled: “PERMANENTO – everyday functional exercise for older adults” is designed to help older adults to maintain the fundamental components of functional fitness. The main goal is to contribute to a broader perception of physical activity, especially its effects on the ageing processes and quality of life.

In March 2021, ILC Argentina, the City of Buenos Aires and the Argentinean Society of Gerontology and Geriatrics organised this free Zoom conference aimed at professionals and older people to launch the campaign: “Decade of Healthy Ageing” (2020-2030).

On the last day of 2020, the 300th story milestone was accomplished and published on Wij & corona (translated into Us & corona). On this Dutch story platform experiences of older people during these trying corona times are shared. With this we give the voice of seniors a stage and support and inspire each other! For example, Willem (71) tells how he tries to stay fit at home and Maarten (77), who is a heart patient and must be extra careful.

As part of the ILC Global Alliance’s 30th anniversary celebrations, ILC-UK and ILC Singapore invite you to join us for a webinar to discuss how Hong Kong and Singapore are responding to the challenges of an ageing society.

Following the ULC-UK's year-long Prevention in an ageing world programme that sparked conversations from Abu Dhabi to Taipei, Austin, Geneva, Sydney, London all the way to the G20 Health Ministers, the message is clear. It’s never too late to prevent.

Following a meeting of its members on Thursday, 7 May 2020, the ILC Global Alliance has prepared a Position Statement on COVID-19.

This report was made in collaboration with ILC Singapore and explores the relationship between Singapore’s ageing population and adult vaccination.
