Can housing equity be an answer to Europe's pension crisis?

AGE Platform Europe would like to invite you to the workshop on “Can housing equity be an answer to Europe's pension crisis?” which will take place on 27 October in the BERLAYMONT Building in Brussels (the room number will be confirmed soon).

The workshop comes out of a EU-funded project, DEMHOW (Demographic change and housing wealth). The project  is intended to explore some of the policy issues around using  wealth held in the form of home ownership to make a contribution to the income needs of older  Europeans.  It thus fits firmly within the sphere of interest of the European Union’s currentGreen Paper: toward adequate, sustainable and safe European pension systems, and it is intended that the workshop will feed into the consultation process.  The draft agenda (see attached file) indicates that the workshop will include a mixture of presentation of research findings from the DEMHOW  project, panel discussion with people involved in policy making, and contributions from other participants.

Please note that the registrations will close on Thursday 13 October.
