Climate for Change: Ageing into the future

We are pleased to invite you to the International Federation on Ageing 10th Global Conference on Ageing to be hosted by Council on the Ageing, Victoria (COTA, Vic). The conference will take place at the Melbourne Convention Centre in Australia 3 - 6 May 2010.

Population ageing is one of the most important challenges facing societies around the world today. It is the essential demographic characteristic of the 21st century. Far from being a crisis, being able to live more active and healthy lives as we grow old represents a triumph in human history.

The 10th Global Conference on Ageing will provide a reliable platform for a global information exchange and point of connection for all, working to generate positive social change for older people. The five themes that form the program framework - Climate Change; Social Inclusion; Human Rights; Resourcing Change; and Healthy Ageing - are expected to stimulate new conversations as well as explore in more depth more traditional subject areas. Each theme will be informed by international and regional frameworks including United Nations (UN) Principles for Older People, the UN Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing and the Active Ageing Framework of the World Health Organization.

The city of Melbourne with its splendour and time honoured Australian culture provides a unique setting to celebrate a decade of IFA global conferences. The IFA and COTA (Vic) reaches out to people of all nations and disciplines in the invitation to attend this international event where knowledge will be shared, information exchanged and solutions explored to strengthen our commitment to successful ageing across the world.
