11-13 April: Within the framework of the global consultations on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Post 2015, Habitat III and 70th United Nations Anniversary, the International Council for Caring Communities (ICCC) is organizing an international working session composed of a non-traditional gathering of government representatives, private sector, entrepreneurs, academics and health decision-makers to leverage their insights and expertise in addressing three major elements for enhancing “Better Living…Adding Life to Years “ by mainstreaming and connecting the dots between Digital Innovation, Community, Health and Rehabilitation Medicine. This Consultation is part of the “Age of Connectivity: Cities, Magnets of Hope. Imagining the Possible” Dialogue Series which has addressed the challenges facing a rapidly urbanizing world since 1994. This event will be held at St. George’s House, Windsor Castle, UK.
01 March: This celebratory Dinner Reception and Concert will take place in the Delegates Dining Room of the United Nations on the evening of March 1st. You will enjoy the combined pleasures of hearing a group of world-class musical performers, meeting the ICCC Pioneer Awardee who has enhanced our world, and meeting and supporting the Society for AgeQuake Student Designers-all this in one evening overlooking the beautiful New York skyline.
In response to requests following ICCC’s most successful “Youth and Older Persons As City Changers…Connecting the Generations” concert, we are delighted to announce that this concert will be larger and, as part of our usual outreach, will present a diverse group of international talent gathered only for this special event, representing a wide range of geographic origins, musical styles, and ages (from 15-70+)!
We are honored that the Society for AgeQuake Student Designer Fellows will be presented with their sponsors, they are the winners of the 2014 competition who have spent the past year giving back to their communities, and we are excited to share them with you. In addition, we are thrilled to present the 2016 ICCC Caring Citizen of the Humanities Award.
