Consultation on the Green Paper on Ageing

About this Event

In the coming decades, the share and number of older people (65+) in the EU will increase from its current rate of 20% to 30%, with those over 80 expected to double reaching 13% by 2070. Given the scale, speed and impact this trend will have across society, we must start planning new approaches and ensuring policies are fit for purpose in an era of significant change from green and digital transitions to new forms of work and the threat of pandemics.

The European Union is well positioned to identify critical issues and trends and support action on ageing at the national, regional, and local levels and help the Member States develop tailor-made policy responses.

The European Union adopted a Green Paper on Ageing to launch a broad policy debate on ageing to discuss how to anticipate and respond to the challenges and opportunities that ageing brings. It opens a wide debate on the impact of demographic change – for citizens of all ages and society as a whole. It raises questions that span across the life-cycle – from the formative years to working age, retirement and the various stages of growing needs.

This requires immediate action if we want to ensure intergenerational fairness and good living standards for all citizens, young and old.

1. March 4th : A virtual information session on the Green Paper on Ageing which will be attended by Ms. Nicola Clavin Press and Communications Officer EU Commission Dublin.
