European Year for Active Ageing 2012

Questions & Answers


What is the overall objective?

The proposed European Year for Active Ageing is designed to serve as a framework for raising awareness, for identifying and disseminating good practice and, more importantly, encouraging policymakers and stakeholders at all levels to facilitate active ageing. The aim is to invite these players to commit to specific action and goals in the run-up year 2011 so that tangible achievements can be presented during the European Year itself in 2012.


How does the planned European Year 2012 build on existing Union programmes?

The European Union has already taken various initiatives to promote active ageing (employment strategy, ESF, PROGRESS, Grundtvig programme for adult education, public health programme, European action plan for „Ageing well in the information society“).

These activities should benefit from an enhanced visibility in the context of the European Year. Many of the existing policies and instruments can be geared towards the goals of the European Year so that projects with an active ageing dimension can get some financial support from the EU (research, conferences, seminars, exchange of experience).

A specific funding programme for the European Year is not foreseen.
