Interactive demography exhibit

The European Commission opened its demography exhibit to the public from 17 to 21 March.

The exhibit was prepared by Population Europe with support by the DG Employment, Social Affairs & Inclusion of the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Friede Springer Stiftung, and the Economic and Social Research Council in the United Kingdom.

Visitors appreciated the layout and the wealth of information, as well as the clarity and accessibility of the messages, intended for a wide and non-specialist public.

The exhibit revolves around the life courses of ordinary Europeans from a young-person's perspective, taking into consideration changes in the population as a whole and their impact on their lives. It underlines the role each one of us has as an individual and member of society, and the role of public policies in accompanying the changes.

The exhibit is interactive. Visitors borrow an iPad (ID required) with videos, games and quizzes, that will supplement the posters. The exhibit is available in English, French and German.
