Europe is ageing. Today’s responsibility is to find sustainable solutions to this that lead to opportunities for economic growth and jobs. This workshop will take its participants through four inspiring examples of how a Silver Economy can help regions and cities to better match the needs of their ageing population while supporting local businesses and solution providers. It will be the opportunity to discuss the complementarity between these examples and the initiatives at EU level. The networking session that follows will bring together potential partners around issues related to the Silver Economy.

As part of the official programme of the European Week of Regions and Cities, this event will take place in the premises of the Committee of the Regions. Interpretation will be made available in English, French and Spanish.
