EU funds the promotion of active ageing

Mon 05 Sep 2011 03:42:00 PM EEST

The Committee of the Regions, AGE Platform Europe and the European Commission have issued a brochure presenting EU funding possibilities for regional and local initiatives to promote active ageing and solidarity between generations.

The brochure aims to make a particular contribution to the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations 2012.

The majority of initiatives to promote active ageing - throughout 2012 and onwards - will be taken without financial support from the EU, but in some cases EU funding will play a role. The brochure shows what resources are available and invites regional and local stakeholders to make the best possible use of them, preferably working in partnerships involving several countries.

The brochure presents numerous examples of projects which have received EU funding. It also includes short presentations of the most relevant EU funding programmes to support new active ageing projects.
