AGE Europe and BAGSO call on EU Council to strengthen rights of older people in context of growing digitalisation

29/09/2020 (Agence Europe) – AGE Europe, the European organisation representing the interests of older people, and BAGSO, the German national association of older people, call on the German EU Council Presidency to implement as soon as possible its conclusions on the well-being of older people in the age of digitisation in a joint press release issued on Tuesday 29 September. Both organisations consider the situation quite unprecedented: these are the first findings in 10 years entirely focused on the issue of older people. As such, both organisations particularly welcome the 5-year action plan provided for in the conclusions. These conclusions, which are not yet public, are expected to be approved by the Committee of Permanent Representatives (Coreper) on Wednesday 30 September. For more information: https://bit.ly/3mYa2RY  - and for the draft conclusions (dated 25 September): https://bit.ly/30lhtJo.  (PH)
