The UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing 2022 will take place in Rome, Italy, from 16 to 17 June 2022.

The Conference will complete the fourth review and appraisal cycle (2018-2022) and mark the 20th anniversary of the adoption of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and its Regional Implementation Strategy (MIPAA/RIS).

The theme of the Conference is “Joining forces for solidarity and equal opportunities throughout life”. Conference panels will address this theme through the lens of:

1) Promoting active and healthy ageing throughout life
2) Ensuring access to long-term care and support for carers and families
3) Mainstreaming ageing to advance a society for all ages

The Ministerial Conference on Ageing is organized by UNECE in cooperation with the UNECE Standing Working Group on Ageing and the Government of Italy.

On 15 June 2022, a joint Forum of Civil Society and Scientific Research entitled “A fulfilling life throughout the life course – A joint effort of civil society and research in policy making” will take place in Rome gathering members of NGOS and the research community from across the UNECE region.

“An alliance between generations and genders is needed in order to re-create a virtuous circle able to reinvigorate our economies and societies and in which communities are protagonists”. 
Elena Bonetti, Minister for equal opportunities and family
