Third European Demography Forum: The Demographic Dimension of the Europe2020 Strategy
"Europe 2020", the European Union's strategy for jobs and smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, was adopted by the European Council in June 2010.
It can only succeed if it takes into account a rapidly changing demographic context and if it finds ways of unleashing the full potential of an ageing and increasingly diverse population.
The 2010 Demography Forum will provide policy makers and stakeholders with an opportunity to:
- explore how to promote active ageing, notably in view of the European Year for Active Ageing envisaged for 2012;
- examine how families can be supported so that they can ensure solidarity between generations; this involves notably taking stock of the activities developed in the framework of the European Alliance for Families and discussing its future;
- debate how to tackle the crisis and consolidate public finances without jeopardizing investment Europe's demographic future.
