gathered digital experts to discuss the practical challenges and benefits of partnerships in the digital
era. The presenters are representing diverse backgrounds and countries: Brazil, Congo, Germany,
United Kingdom and United States. ICCC’s mission includes serving as a bridge joining universities, government agencies, NGOs, the private sector, and the UN agencies to promote new ways of viewing an integrated society of all ages.
17-19 April: Within the framework of the global consultations on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals Post 2015 and Habitat III 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 Urban Futures, Health & Rehabilitation, Digital Innovation. 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.
We are delighted to participate in the 59th United Nations Commission for Social Development, on Tuesday, 9 Feb for the virtual session: “Re-imagining Well-being: Digitally Connecting the Dots…Ageing, Music, ICT & the Climate Crisis”. A gathering of international experts from Austria, Australia, Ireland, Russia, Tanzania, and the United States will explore ways that digital technology can enhance a “Society for All Agnes.”
Statistics show that by 2050, there will be 1.5 billion persons over 65 years of age (the “AgeQuake”). How Information-communication Technology will be used to support healthcare during the COVID crisis and as a bridge to eliminate the isolation of seniors, and how music can serve as a catalyst to expand worldviews and point to multilateralism can lead to larger social change in urban settings. This session of non-traditional new global leaders and experts will leverage their insights and wisdom to address four key elements for enhancing “Better Living…Adding Life to Years” by connecting the dots of the inter-linked SDG’s, New Urban Agenda, technology, and smart cities as more “human-oriented cities” …a practical holistic mindset! They will link in real-time to determine how creative innovations and abilities can be impacted through ICT. The 5th edition of the Music Compendium: Global Resource:Solutions for Cultural, Social, Health, Educational, Environmental and Economic Issues” features 109 projects illustrating the important role music plays in enhancing well-being. These successful projects gathered from over 50 UN Member States are digitally accessed for practical review and communication.
A call-to-action will be proposed at the end of the workshop.
