On May 10 – 13, 2016, in Budapest (Hungary) IFRC’s Regional Office for Europe hosted the international workshop “Healthy ageing”. The workshop was attended by colleagues from 14 Red Cross Red Crescent national societies, including the Latvian Red Cross.
The main goal of the workshop was to discuss and pilot the new IFRC Healthy Ageing guidelines and tools to get feedback from the participants on areas for improvement. Participants also shared practices of their national societies.
Guidelines about healthy ageing mentioned above will be used all around the World in volunteer trainings within the Red Cross and Red Crescent movement.
