Changing images of ageing - international perspectives for a future-oriented policy on senior citizens and generations

Successful policies for all generations need to be based on reliable knowledge about the living conditions of those involved. The German Government Reports on the Elderly provide such a foundation. Hence, Dr Kristina Schröder, Federal Minister for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, will be hosting an international conference on 12 December 2011 in Berlin.
Proceeding from the Sixth Government Report on the Elderly with its focus on images of ageing, the instruments, themes and effects of reporting on matters related to the elderly will be compared and discussed by representatives from several countries.
The conference addresses decision-makers in the field of politics, administration and civil society who are active in the policy fields relating to senior citizens and generation issues, national and international actors who report on ageing issues and also other experts with an interest in the field. No conference fee will be charged.
