Ordizia is a municipality located in the southern part of Guipúzcoa province in Spain. A member of the WHO Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities since 2014,  Ordizia has been part of the Age-Friendly Basque Country Programme – EuskadiLagunkoia – since 2013.

Euskadi Langunkoia –Age-friendly Basque Country – is a cross-cutting initiative that engages citizens, the public and private sectors to create supportive and enabling environments for older people.

Euskadi Langunkoia works with a number of communities across the Basque Country, including Ordizia, to develop a network of age-friendly communities and facilitate the exchange of good practice between them. Consultations with older people across Ordizia were carried out in 2013 (Ordizia Lagunkoia – Fase 1: Diagnóstico).
