The video Social Participation focuses on the importance of fostering social participation for older adults throughout their lives. Social participation is not only a fundamental right for citizens but also carries significant implications for society, spanning economic, social, and environmental dimensions. Demographic and socio-economic changes necessitate a review of participation patterns, considering evolving family and societal structures. Age-friendly communities play a pivotal role in facilitating social participation, benefiting older individuals, policy makers, practitioners, and society as a whole.
