EY2012 coalition

The EY2012 coalition currently includes more than 50 European organisations who see the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations as an opportunity to address age discrimination and demographic change in a way that is fair and sustainable for all ages.

The Year will promote innovative solutions to economic and social challenges facing the ageing European population. It will also help empower older people to stay in good physical and mental health and contribute more actively to the labour market and to their communities.
