We will discuss JDC-ESHEL's Strategic Plan for Optimal Ageing, based on 52 years of activity in the field of ageing in Israel, conducted in collaboration with the government, local authorities and civil society. The cornerstones of this strategic plan is an ability to operate using a single agreed-upon compass, to bridge language gaps, to pool resources and to combine forces within the older adult industry in Israel.
