A Society for All Ages: Challenges and Opportunities

6 - 8 November 2007

León, Spain

The 2007 UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing reviewed the implementation of the UNECE Regional Implementation Strategy (RIS) of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA). Since the Strategy was adopted in 2002, the period of the so-called "demographic bonus" has approached its end in most countries of the UNECE region and the need to adjust to demographic change has become more acute. The Conference considered the findings of national reviews, shared experiences and good practices and identified priorities for future action. The Conference also adopted a Ministerial Declaration entitled "A Society for All Ages: challenges and opportunities.

Preparatory Process

In the first five-year cycle of the global review and appraisal of the Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing (MIPAA), the UN Commission for Social Development invited regional commissions to convene regional conferences to consider the findings of national reviews, share experiences and good practices, and identify priorities for future action. In the UNECE region, the Government of Spain has proposed to organize and host the UNECE Ministerial Conference on Ageing in León from 6 to 8 November 2007.

Registration > Informations for NGOs

The Civil Society Forum will take place in León, Spain on 5 November. The meeting is convened and hosted by the Institute for the Elderly and Social Services (IMSERSO) of the Spanish Ministry for Work and Social Affairs. The forum co-ordinator is Mr Dirk Jarre.

The UNECE secretariat is working closely with NGOs in preparation for the Ministerial Conference. NGO representatives participated in the meeting of the Preparatory Committee (link to the meeting page) and are contributing to the drafting process of the ministerial declaration (link to the declaration comments page). There will be a specific Civil Society Forum but it should be noted that the main conference is an intergovernmental one and that due to space constraints it is likely that only a limited number of NGO representatives will be able to follow the proceedings in the conference room. Overflow rooms will be provided with an audio-video link to the conference hall.

Modalities for registration of NGO representatives

 

All non-governmental organizations having consultative status with the Economic and Social Council, or having been accredited to the second World Assembly on Ageing and active in the UNECE region, are automatically accredited to the UNECE Ministerial Conference. The only requirement is to register through a completed registration form.

These NGOs should submit a completed registration form and one page of A4 containing a statement on the purpose of the organization they are representing.
