Age Friendly Edmonton is a collaborative initiative between the City of Edmonton, Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council and Edmonton senior serving organizations. Edmonton is part of a global movement exploring what actions cities can take to enhance the ongoing health, participation, and security of seniors as they age.
The Vision for an Age-Friendly Edmonton Action Plan is the result of extensive community consultation with seniors and their caregivers and key stakeholders. It is built on a common vision of Edmonton as a community that values, respects, and actively supports the well-being of seniors, and promotes an age-friendly community. It acknowledges the economic, social, and cultural diversity of Edmonton’s current and future seniors. And it is rooted in the principle that seniors take an active role in the implementation of the actions required to meet the Plan’s 18 goals.
The Information and Communication Working Group of Age Friendly Edmonton is working towards the goal of “seniors and those who support them having easy access to the information they need when it’s required.”
The Information and Communication Working Group is seeking proposals from experienced researchers, community development professionals, and project consultants for Phase 2 of a three phase project to create a comprehensive, cohesive information services system for print and digital materials for older adults in Edmonton. Phase 2 of the project is titled ‘Roadmap and Strategic Plan for the Improvement of Seniors’ Information Services and Resources (print and digital mediums) in Edmonton.’
