The Silver Citizens Summit will take place during the next edition of the SilverEco & Ageing Well International Festival, on September 16 and 17, 2024 at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes.

How to adapt society to ageing ?

The Silver Citizens Summit is the international multidisciplinary congress dedicated to the future of our aging societies and the central place occupied by elderly citizens. This unique meeting is an opportunity for experts, policy makers, field actors and citizens of all generations to come together to envision innovative and sustainable solutions for a common healthy aging.

This summit will notably focus on the WHO’s “Age-Friendly Cities” initiative, and how such an approach can be extended to territories and “Age-friendly countries”. A section will be devoted to departmental public services for autonomy, where the idea of a one-stop shop to meet the healthy aging needs of seniors will be explored.

The concept of “Silver citizenship” will also be addressed, particularly the place of elderly citizens in European and international policies, and the consideration of population aging by companies of all kinds. A unique opportunity to understand how current policies affect the lives of older people and how they could be improved to better meet their specific needs.

The Silver Citizens Summit will give voice to the younger generation, with feedback on intergenerational issues. Another major theme on the program: “Age friendly employers” and the impact of population aging on the world of work.

Five workshops and panel discussions about the challenges of the sector

The Silver Citizens Summit, is also a dedicated SilverEco & Ageing Well Trophy, an exhibition tour inside the festival, reserved networking sessions, etc.
