Practical guide to implement and use in municipalities

The Basque country has taken a proactive approach to the WHO Age-friendly cities and communities initiative by developing Euskadi Lagunkoia Sustraietatik, implemented by the Department of Employment and Social Policies.
Rallying institutions, agents and individuals to make living spaces more “age-friendly”, where people can live without physical obstacles and barriers is a primary goal.
The new guide aims to support all municipalities in Euskadi in the creation of age-friendly cities.
The guide documents a pilot project designed to analyze and implement methods of advancing the age-friendliness of territories, as tested in 15 pilot municipalities.
