ICAPA Partners2


The International Coalition for Aging and Physical Activity (ICAPA) is an international not-for-profit group of researchers and practitioners that promotes the study of active aging; the enhanced delivery of services to older adults; and the collection, dissemination, and discussion of information to help professionals further their work.

If your organization focuses on the study of aging or delivers programs and services to older adults, please consider joining ICAPA. It’s free; there are no dues, but member organizations must be willing to participate in the Active Aging Community Center because the Coalition works through the AACC to accomplish its goals.

The National Blueprint: Increasing Physical Activity Among Adults Age 50 and Older


The National Blueprint: Increasing Physical Activity Among Adults Aged 50 and Older serves as a guide for multiple organizations, associations, and agencies to inform and support their planning work related to increasing physical activity among America’s aging population. The plan was developed with input from more than 60 individuals representing 46 organizations with expertise in health, medicine, social and behavioral sciences, epidemiology, gerontology/geriatrics, clinical science, public policy, marketing, medical systems, community organization, and environmental issues.

A major goal of the Blueprint is to identify the principal barriers to physical activity participation in older adults and to outline strategies for increasing physical activity levels throughout the population. The Blueprint identifies specific needs in the areas of research, home and community programs, workplace settings, medical systems, public policy and advocacy, and crosscutting issues.
