EMIL's European Year 2012 Roundtable Events: Final reports

Designating 2012 as the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations
was intended to raise awareness of the contribution that older people make to society and
encourage policymakers and relevant stakeholders at all levels to take action with the aim of
creating better opportunities for active ageing and strengthening solidarity between generations.
With that in mind, EMIL placed a call for proposals to run a series of roundtable events across
Europe. Each of these events brought together an invited audience of professionals, older and
younger people to consider a number of key questions from their national perspective. Each
event has produced a summative report of its discussions, including recommendations for
creating a ‘Society for All Ages’. These reports have been compiled in this publication
