Welcome to the Covenant on Demographic Change's newsletter!

Welcome to the Covenant's second newsletter! You will find below latest reports and updates of relevance for our work towards a more age-friendly Europe. Major institutions have indeed recently worked on key issues, e.g. housing and digital literacy, while taking into account older persons' perspectives.

You will also find in this issue a list of events to take place in the upcoming months. Let us in particular highlight three of them. Firstly, the Covenant together with a series of partners is organising on 10 October in Brussels, Belgium, a side event in the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities on 'Smart cities and communities for all: How to become smart and age-friendly'. Secondly, Age-Friendly Ireland is hosting a conference on 'Increasing capacity for age-friendly environments in Europe: An action agenda for European cities and communities' on 25-26 October in Dublin, Ireland. Registration for both events are still open. Last but not least, the European Commission in organising its second European Summit on Digital Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing on 5-8 December in Brussels, Belgium. Registrations will open soon and the Covenant is planning activities around the Summit, keep an eye on for updates!

We hope you will enjoy reading the newsletter and we invite you to send us further news on age-friendly environments.
