The Council has now held 13 global dialogues on multiple themes as part of the dementia landscape project. The most recent dialogues in the series that took place over the autumn have been on the topics of non-amyloid targets for disease modification, psychosocial research, lived experiences of dementia, and early career scientists.
The dialogues have so far gathered over 400 international experts to reflect on where we have come from, where we are now and what the next steps are to help realize the 2025 goals. Drawing on these expert insights, the dialogues are helping us prepare a report that will be published in 2022 and fed into the virtual summit that took place in December. We have greatly appreciated hearing from those working across the dementia community as part of this project and look forward to ongoing engagement.
There will be more updates and announcements in the news section below as the project continues.
About the project
The dementia landscape project is a global initiative by the WDC to review international progress towards the 2025 dementia goals. At the dementia summit in 2013, G7 governments pledged to work together to make substantial advances in research, care, awareness-raising and prevention by 2025. The Council itself was established following the summit with the aim of supporting and challenging the international community to deliver on their commitments.
