Welcome to the website of the European Network for Action on Ageing and Physical Activity!
Physical activity in older persons is more than ever of great significance both from a social as well as an individual perspective. Physical activity prevents a number of diseases among elderly people and is a source of joy, expression of life and positive self-affirmative experiences. Through the last years and together with members and colleagues in the network, we have conducted some important work in line with our vision: ‘Optimal health and quality of life for older people in Europe through physical activity.’ For example by providing information and expert advice to policy makers, providers and professionals in the fields of ageing, physical activity and health. To get an idea of the planned activities for the next years you can have a look at our roadmap 2011-2015 here, as well as the progress in the last years. The work plan for 2014, which has been supported by an operating grant from the EU Health Programme. With this grant EUNAAPA aims to reach the following objectives in concurrence with its roadmap 2011-2015: to educate and enhance awareness in medical professionals and to support strategies to disseminate and exchange knowledge and expertise on EU, national and regional level.
