What I want to do today is tie the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations into our wider efforts to deal with the challenges facing Europe — both those stemming directly from the crisis and those that were there anyhow.
The average age in our countries has been rising continuously for many years. But now the crucial balance between the active and the retired members of society will be changing very fast as many people move into retirement and few enter the labour market. So it is high time to look at the solutions and develop a positive approach to tackling the challenges of ageing.
