In 2014, Alzheimer Europe launched the Glasgow Declaration which called for the creation of a European Dementia Strategy and national strategies in every country in Europe. The signatories also called upon world leaders to recognise dementia as a public health priority and to develop a global action plan on dementia.

The participants at this plenary session from the European Commission, the European Parliament, the Joint Programme for Neurodegenerative Diseases Research (JPND), the Luxembourg Presidency of the European Union, the World Dementia Council and the World Health Organisation (WHO) will briefly present the latest activities of their respective organisations in promoting the recognition of dementia as a European and global priority.

The interactive round table discussion will be moderated by Nis Nissen, the Executive Director of the Danish Alzheimer’s Association.
