For the past four years, approximately 200 researchers from 35 countries have worked together in the COST Action IS1402 on AGEISM (www.notoageism.com) to develop a comprehensive body of knowledge on the topic of ageism.
Our collaborative work has resulted in numerous publications, a special issue and an open-access book by Springer: Contemporary Perspectives on Ageism.
Our goals for this final meeting are to:
1. Present the outcomes of the COST Action on Ageism to national and sub-national policymakers responsible for providing services and developing programmes targeting older citizens
2. Increase awareness to the topic of ageism and present solutions to combat ageism at grass-root level.
3. Facilitate action to reduce ageism through sub-national policy and legislations
