Call for posters: How to realize the potential of living longer?


Poster exhibition on good practices in implementing MIPAA/RIS



The UNECE Ministerial Conference A sustainable society for all ages: realizing the potential of living longer will provide a forum to showcase good practice examples and innovative approaches in implementing the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its Regional Implementation Strategy (MIPAA/RIS) in UNECE member States. A poster exhibition will provide a space for additional information about selected good practices. We invite member States as well as NGOs and scientists participating in the Ministerial Conference to submit their good practice examples until 30 May 2017. The conference organizers will select the best submissions for the exhibit. After the review of submissions applicants will be informed by 30 June 2017 whether or not their proposal can be accommodated. The posters will be displayed in the conference venue.
