Register now: "Ageism and the next EU Agenda" – Citizen Workshop on 26 September 2024

Older people around a table, engaged in discussion

A new European Parliament will soon be formed, which means that a new policy agenda is about to be established.

Will the policies of the next five years work towards an age-inclusive Europe? This is the moment to get our word in!

We are living longer and healthier than ever in Europe, yet ageism holds many people back from participating in society. Fortunately, there are ways forward. The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified three areas for action to dismantle ageism: through policies and laws, education, and intergenerational interaction.

This workshop is open to all people interested in countering ageism, especially members of civil society organisations, volunteers, engaged citizens, community organisers, care workers and educators.

Thursday, 26 September 2024, 10:30-12:30 CEST
Online (via GDPR compliant Zoom licence)

Languages: The workshop will be held in English with simultaneous interpretation in French, Italian, German and Spanish.

You will have the chance to share your ideas how the new EU legislature can fight ageism through policies, laws, education and intergenerational programmes. Your contribution will feed into policy recommendations for EU Policy makers and other government stakeholders. Leading demographers will also present their latest research on the relationship between policies and ageism in Europe.
