ILC Netherlands (ILC-NL) is an independent movement of people who aim to put aging high on the social and political agenda. The goal is to activate people in thinking about active and healthy aging in an early stage by organizing debates, media attention, and sharing experiences and expertise, both nationally and internationally.

ILC-NL is committed to the independence state of being of the elderly, requiring tailored conditions, skills and a good living environment. The vitality of the elderly should be promoted while vulnerability and dependency are postponed as long as possible. Also it is important to remain active as an employee, volunteer or entrepreneur without being discriminated because of age.

ILC-NL is a member of the International Longevity Center Global Alliance, an international federation of centers for active and healthy aging. Visit for more information. ILC-NL is supported by Leyden Academy on Vitality and Ageing and Vereniging Aegon.
