WPT4 - Development of the TAAFE Strategy for an agefriendly AS
The TAAFE strategy will identify possible next steps and actions that can be taken together to build an age-friendly environment in the Alpine space and cooperation across borders.
The aim of the TAAFE strategy is the formulation of a common vison and the development of recommendations in each of the eight priority areas defined by the WHO-framework.
The TAAFE strategy will be based on relevant existing strategies on international and European level and reflect the specific situation of the Alpine space. Information of existing strategies and their implementation as well as on best practices on national, regional and local level will be collected by all partners reporting on their own experiences and based on a literature review (D.T.4.1.1). Additionally, expert interviews with key stakeholders will be taken, assessing their visions for an age-friendly Alpine space and successful policy tools and practices.
The strategy will focus on common challenges in Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Slovenia to develop age-friendly environments and formulate concrete recommendations, focusing especially on synergies and perspectives resulting from possible cross-regional, international and inter-sectional cooperation and partnerships.
TAAFE Policy Meeting
Reports on local TAFFE Strategy for sustaining achievements
Each partner country of TAAFE – Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Slovenia – composes a report on its own experiences and learnings with a focus on the opportunities for the further development of age-friendly environments and for sustaining achievements of TAAFE in their respective contexts. These documents consider country specific circumstances, policies and frameworks, which support the development and sustainability of T.A.A.F.E. outcomes in the national context. Furthermore, the reports explore opportunities for knowledge exchange and networking for the development of a joint vision of age-friendliness.
The reports build on (a) results of the assessment of the current situation in the Alpine Space, as presented in the report on age-friendliness in the Alpine Space (DT4.1), and (b) on outcomes of a policy dialogue that was enabled through TAAFE by means of a sequence of multi-stakeholder policy meetings in each partner country. In addition, the assessment of scaling possibilities of the TAAFE model and accompanying local initiatives and products relies on experiences that TAAFE partners made during the implementation of the local pilots (see also D.T2.3.1 TAAFE Pilot Implementation Plan).
