Enhance the policy context for the work of the equality bodies in promoting equality and combating discrimination on the age ground in all areas of life.
Engage equality bodies at European and Member State level so that their experience can inform new commitments, directions and priorities for active ageing.
Present a real and lasting challenge to ageism and discrimination and the manner in which these phenomena diminish older people and block their contribution to society.
It is important to point out that this Equinet perspective focuses in particular on the situation and experience of older people and on the diversity of older people.
To enable and inform this perspective, an Equinet survey of the work of equality bodies on the age ground was conducted. A special meeting of the Equinet Working Group on Policy Formation was convened to discuss and shape this perspective and the Working Group continued this participation in finalising this perspective.
