To help inform the report, a number of global dialogues are being held, which are gathering 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. The dialogues are helping the Council prepare the report, drawing on the insight from experts in the field.

The Council has greatly appreciated hearing from those working across the dementia community as part of this project and looks forward to ongoing events as part of the project schedule.
