Decision on the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity (2012)

Parliament endorses 2012 as the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations.

European Year shall facilitate the creation of a sustainable active ageing culture, based on a society for all ages and on solidarity between generations. National, regional and local authorities as well as social partners, businesses and civil society should promote "active ageing" and do more to mobilise the potential of the rapidly growing population in their late 50s and above.

 

This should be done through conferences and events, information campaigns, exchange of information and good practices, but also by commissioning surveys and studies, focusing on social and economic impact of active ageing.
