Covenant on Demographic Change

EuroHealthNet is a member of the Covenant on Demographic Change, which gathers European public authorities and stakeholders, at local, regional and national level who are committed to developing environments that support active and healthy ageing, enhance independent living and well-being of older persons, and create a society for all ages.

The Covenant was launched in January 2016 as a continuation and expansion on the goals of AFE-INNOVNET’s Thematic Framework. The launch of the Covenant was also a shift from an informal network to an international non-for-profit organization under Belgian law, and has expanded from 68 members to its current 153 members.

It considers the eight domains of the WHO age-friendly environments approach:

  • Housing
  • Social participation
  • Respect and social inclusion
  • Civic participation and employment
  • Communication and information
  • Community support and health services
  • Outdoor spaces and built environment
  • Transportation

The full members of the Covenant commit to developing an action plan related to one or more of these domains, supported by the expertise of Associate and Ordinary members, such as EuroHealthNet.
