The European Parliament's Intergroup on Active Ageing, Intergenerational Solidarity and Family policies is based on the previous Intergroup on Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity and the Family Intergroup, founded in 1982. The new Intergroup brings together MEPs interested in discussing ageing- and family- related issues; it will work in two sub-groups, one on active ageing (in which we will be involved) and the other one on family, while the issue of intergenerational solidarity will be mainstreamed in all of the Intergroup's activities.
The long-standing Intergroup on Active ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity has been officially re-established since 12 March 2015. This Intergroup will now also be dealing with family policies. AGE will closely working with the subgroup dedicated to active ageing, which will bring together MEPs who have an interest in discussing the challenges that ageing poses for all generations, and finding sustainable and fair solutions for all of European citizens
For many years now, AGE has been closely working with the previous Intergroup on ageing and intergenerational solidarity, leading to key progresses on many EU dossiers. We hope to maintain this privileged relationship with the new Intergroup workind on active ageing issues in order to make further progress to adapt Europe to population ageing.
AGE will monitor and report on the Intergroup's activities on its blog "Towards an Age-Friendly European Parliament" aimed to become a collaborative platform on what the new European Parliament will do to address demographic change.
