EC Report: 2012 Year for Active Ageing


The Demography Report 2010 was recently published by the European Commission and the findings highlight that Europe’s population is ageing at a rapid rate.

The report outlines that Europe needs to tap into the potential of this vast proportion of ageing Europeans, through the promotion of active ageing. Various activities have already been planned including the launch of 2012 as the European Year for Active Ageing. Continuing support is also needed for older Europeans to acquire ICT skills, a core component for active ageing.
