The purpose of this toolkit is to support WHO regional and country offices and our partners around the world in planning effective events on the World report on ageing and health or on ageing and health more generally. These events could target a range of stakeholders for awareness-raising, engagement and action towards Healthy Ageing.
Action for ageing sets out ideas for events that could be used to complement or replace more traditional formats such as formal speeches, presentations and panel events. In many circumstances creative, interactive and informal formats may be more conducive to innovation, problem solving and genuine engagement than traditional formats. Creative events are likely to be appreciated and remembered by participants and foster discussions and innovative solutions among stakeholders. This toolkit discusses various event formats which provide options that can be combined to suit your needs and resources.
