Exchange knowledge, tools and expertise to promote active & healthy ageing and age-friendly environments in cities.

The Municipality of Udine, which joint the "Healthy Cities" Project in 1995, is strongly committed on the theme of Healthy and Active Ageing since 9 years. In such a long period the staff and the experts involved acquired a clear vision of the processes, conditions and actors needed to achieve the results described above. By working within the WHO Network of Healthy Cities, Udine has developed a number of guides and manuals which are useful tools both to describe the good practice and to help receiving cities in transferring it.

Integrated action plans

An Integrated Action Plan (IAP) is a policy instrument that is produced by Action Planning networks within a period of 12 - 14 months after the beginning of their activities. The aim of the IAP is to respond in a concrete way to a urban challenge, which is common to all involved cities. Each partner city develops its own IAP, so all plans are unique in terms of local circumstances, territorial coverage and, most of all, the context in which this tool is proposed to be implemented. The creation and validation of this instrument relies in a collective undertaking, designed to strengthen commitment and to increase the prospect of sustainable delivery. In this sense, every partner city must establish a URBACT Local Group (ULG), in order to gather implicated stakeholders to co-create and participate in this process.Thus, the IAP reflect and integrate all ULG members' knowledge and learning from transnational exchange.
