Social Agenda 21 - Jumping the Generation gap - How the EU promotes intergenerational solidarity  (17/07/2009)

Catalog N. :KE-AF-09-021-EN-C

Older people are a large and growing section of the EU's population. But the context of demographic ageing often gives rise to a negative narrative about older people being a growing burden to society. Issue 21 of the Social Agenda magazine is devoted to jumping the generation gap. The special feature looks at the new challenges and opportunities arising from the shift towards demographic ageing, while former Director-General of DG Employment Nikolaus G. van der Pas reminisces on his four years at the helm of the Directorate-General. In addition, this issue reports on the views and concerns of European citizens on the relations between generations in an ageing society, and examines the many ways in which older people contribute to social cohesion through volunteer work. This magazine is available in English, French and German.
