Carina Dantas, SIRENE coordinator and the CEO of SHINE 2Europe, joined the COST Program delegation at the United Nations General Assembly satellite events in New York (September 12-15). She showcased the impactful work of the COST Action focused on Smart Healthy Age-Friendly Environments (SHAFE). SHAFE, initiated in 2017, has grown into a global movement with over 700 members across 51 countries, recognized as a UN Sustainable Development Goals Good Practice. Projects like SIRENE, funded by Horizon Europe and led by SHINE, extend SHAFE’s influence, promoting inclusive solutions for independent living.
