    Goals / remit

AGE Platform Europe is a European network of organisations of people aged 50+ and directly represents over 40 million older people in Europe. AGE aims to voice and promote the interests of the 150 million inhabitants aged 50+ in the European Union and to raise awareness of the issues that concern them most.

AGE’s vision is that of a European society inclusive of all ages and free from all forms of discrimination, where all citizens enjoy equal rights and equal access to fundamental goods and services and where all citizens, regardless of their age, are empowered to participate fully in society.

In order to realise this agenda, our members believe that the EU must work in partnership with all relevant stakeholders. Indeed, the scale of these challenges requires full commitment from all actors with a stake in Europe’s success, and AGE believes that civil society has a unique contribution to make in realising this aim and in building a new confidence in the EU as a force for prosperity, solidarity, security and equal opportunity for all in Europe

AGE’s work is mainly targeted at our members as well as external stakeholders such as European institutions, national and local public authorities, European social NGOs and social partners, and other relevant parties working in the field of ageing and human rights.

AGE aims to become the key network representing senior citizens across the EU and for that we want to develop our capacity to respond to the rapidly growing request for co-operation from external institutions: public authorities at EU, national regional and local levels, universities, researchers, social partners, industry, and other NGOs.

AGE believes that older and/or retired people should be able to speak out on their own behalf. To this end, AGE places great importance on their leadership and active involvement in all of its activities. To implement this principle, our internal structure is developed in a democratic way, with a General Assembly, elected Council and Executive Committee, designated Accreditation Committee and Experts Groups and an appointed Secretariat, to ensure that our members are actively involved in our work. Our main working method is networking and alliance building.

AGE works to build a more effective civil dialogue at European, national, regional and local level and seeks to ensure that this dialogue recognises and takes account of the needs and expectations of older people across the EU and of their great social and cultural diversity.
