Results of the Active Ageing Index project are presented on the closing conference for the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between generations


Bernd Marin and Asghar Zaidi presented findings of the Active Ageing Index (AAI) project. The AAI is being developed in a joint project with the United Nations Economic Committee for Europe (UNECE) and the European Centre for Social Welfare Policy and Research in Vienna, on behalf of the European Commission. The index measures different dimensions of active ageing and quantify untapped active ageing potentials for each country, thus showing how much progress could still be made. This one-day event (held on 10 December in Nicosia, Cyprus) brought together high-level EU and national policy makers, civil society organisations and other stakeholders to celebrate the achievements of these months and to announce follow-up activities to ensure a lasting impact of the Year.
