The Copenhagen Summit will be an annual meeting of the Global Think Tank convened by the International Federation on Ageing in partnership with DaneAge in Copenhagen, Denmark.
It is an international platform specifically convened to stimulate policy discussions with key decision makers in government, business and civil society on a specific topic of interest. The theme for 2015/2016 focuses on reablement and older people.
Targeted round table discussions linked to the evidence based-discussion papers are expected to stimulate intergovernmental dialogue about reablement and older people and the corresponding social and economic business case for reablement as part of the life course approach to ageing.
As part of their commitment to policy reflection and development, participants in the Copenhagen Summit will be invited to commit to using the discussion papers and final Summit report to introduce the issue of reablement and older people into their sectors, disciplines and departments.
