The healthPROelderly project aims to gather information from the partner countries and identify best practices in the field of health promotion for older people. There is a focus on those models that have a sustainable approach and which regard socio-economic, environmental and life-style related determinants. The project "healthPROelderly" has as its overall aim in contributing to the development of health promotion for older people through producing guidelines with recommendations for potential actors in this field on EU, national and local level. The specific objectives of the healthPROelderly project are: • to carry out a literature review concerning health promotion of older people in each of the participating countries. • to develop a common vocabulary and a glossary in order to create a terminology and understanding for health promotion projects. • to develop a set of criteria for the selection of models of good practices in the health promotion of older people as well as models of best practice. • to identify models for health promotion for older people and make them available in the form of a database on the website. • to develop a strategic approach to communicate and disseminate the findings of the project and the identified models of best practice for health promotion. • to inform and raise the awareness amongst experts and authorities throughout the EU about the issue of ageing and the impact of the demographic change on our society
