According to the organisers, in the current context of significant budget difficulties in most Member States, innovative and cost effective responses to the challenges posed by demographic change are needed to ensure realistic results for citizens of all ages across the EU.
Thus, the seminar will:
Take stock of the situation within the EU and identify actions needed at different levels and in different areas to create environments that foster the autonomy, inclusion and active participation of all generations in society;
Make recommendations to decision-makers and stakeholders on how best respond to the challenge of demographic ageing through the creation of age-friendly environments.
More details on this conference will be posted on the AGE website in the coming weeks.
