WHO? (I) Its founding members Oriol Puig (27, Journalist), José Luis Buenache (35, Jurist) and Sònia Díaz (37, Sociologist) belive that active ageing implies social change, a transformation of social policy promoted by public administrations and by the offer of associative and private sectors in order to achieve a greater mental, physical and social capacity building for elderly persons, meeting with the recommendations of the World Health Organisation. 2012 Edition boosted by

WHO? (II): the SIENA Team We wish it to be innovative as well as to create impact beyond our country. Thus, we have managed to achieve (it is one of our successes) the complicity of external experts, some of them with international experience, sharing our vision and mission to work as freelance with us in the design, execution and promotion of active ageing projects. Each expert participate on the basis of its experiences, knowledge and availability.

SIENA's aims (II) To empower personal autonomy for older people by promoting their real and active social participation. We believe that getting involved necessarily implies considerable progress in the transformation of reality surrounding the elderly, given that we are all citizens and we have rights. People can and should be able to exercise whatever their physical or mental condition. 2012 Edition boosted by
