AAA and ISO have joined forces in a united effort to flesh out a new ISO Ageing Societies standard, which aims to:
Accelerate construction of a new breed of age-friendly housing in ‘smart’ socially supportive multigenerational neighbourhoods, employing innovative technologies, business and service models, to improve health and wellbeing and reduce the financial burden on Citizens and State.
AAA and ISO aim to evolve the proposition through consultation across seven broad categories: industry and commerce; government; labour; academic and research bodies; non-governmental organisations, together with end-users, older adults in particular.
Work began in May with the AAA ISO Leaders Forum, involving over 600 experts, thought leaders and cross-sector stakeholders. Click here to learn more.
The proposal will be submitted to the ISO Ageing Societies Technical Committee for final refinement and approval in the autumn. Thereafter stakeholders will invited to contribute towards development of the new standard and a voluntary code of conduct upon which strategies and solutions can be built.
