The European Commission launched a broad policy debate on the challenges and opportunities of Europe’s aging society via its freshly released Green Paper on Ageing. The European Commission sets out the impact of the demographic trend across our economy and society and invites the public to express their views on how to respond to this in a public consultation, which will run until April 21st 2021.

Dubravka Šuica, Vice-President for Democracy and Demography, said: “The fact that we are living longer, healthier lives than the generations before shows the success and strength of our social market economy. But it also presents new challenges and offers opportunities which we need to consider. This green paper will launch a discussion on tapping the full potential of an aging population – the drivers for innovation which it presents, and the policy responses required.”

The SHAPES project welcomes this initiative and join forces with its partners and other Large-Scale Pilot projects to contribute to the consultation.
