European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations
2012 was the European Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity between
Generations. It was an opportunity for all of us to reflect on how
Europeans are living longer and staying healthier than ever before — and
to realise the opportunities that this represents.
The main objectives of EY2012 were to:
• Promote active ageing in employment;
• Promote active ageing in the community including through active citizenship, volunteering and caring;
• Promote active ageing at home through enabling healthy ageing and independent living; and
• Enhance cooperation and solidarity between the generations.
