Ageing and Life Course

European year for active ageing and solidarity between generations

2012 -- Europe

2012 is the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations. A chance for all of us to reflect on how Europeans are living longer and staying healthier than ever before — and to realize the opportunities that represents. The European Year seeks to encourage policy-makers and stakeholders to improve opportunities for active ageing in general and for living independently.
