2012 European Year of Intergenerational Solidarity

Following a conference on intergenerational solidarity in April 2008 under
the Slovenian Presidency, there have been calls to organise a European Year for
Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity. Such a European Year should
strengthen intergenerational solidarity by increasing the awareness of the
contribution of older people to society and by spreading innovative measures
which could help to mobilise the full potential of the ageing baby-boom
cohorts.The purpose of the present consultation is to collect ideas and suggestions
from key stakeholders and experts on how to achieve the greatest possible impact
with such a European Year and to help the Commission decide whether and how to
organise a European Year.31 July
