“For many years we have all considerably participated to change the perception of the ageing population. To change one’s own views on ageing as an individual, is not the least of the challenges involved. This event spotlights the best solutions dedicated to Ageing Well. I am particularly proud to organize these International Awards.
Congratulations to all the prize-winners. They have demonstrated that collectively it is possible to innovate, share information and methods, and to build together a caring society in which we can all look forward to Ageing Well.“Jérôme PIGNIEZ, President of SilverEco.org and SilverEco International Festival and Awards organizer
