DCU has taken a leadership role worldwide in establishing this initiative, with partner institutions in the US, UK and Ireland also announcing their commitment to the initiative today. The intention is that this initiative will be followed by many other universities around the world with Arizona State University, the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow and Dundalk Institute of Technology all embracing the initiative. An 'Age Friendly University' champions positive and active ageing and aims to encourage the participation of older adults in all the core activities of the university, including education programmes, research and innovation, as well as health, fitness, social and cultural activities.
