ILC-BR President Alexandre Kalache on how urban planning responds to the needs of older people
The Philanthropy for Better Cities Forum is convened by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and is the first of its kind in Asia to focus on metropolitan social issues. The event offers opportunity for dialogue between philanthropists, thought leaders, social entrepreneurs, policymakers, academics and representatives of NGOs.
Alexandre Kalache participated, together with Jane Barratt, Secretary General of IFA and Dr Law Chi-kwong, Hong Kong’s Secretary for Labour and Welfare. The session explored what turns a city into an age-friendly place and how they differ with respect to ageing populations. The experts also discussed innovative examples from around the world.
ILC-Israel's members have been working on many research projects. This year we have already published a variety of research articles on gerontological subjects related to the Coronavirus, stress, cognitive performance, pulmonary disease, ageism, physical balance, and more.
