Awards

The Ceremony of the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations Awards took place on 13th November 2012 at the European Commission in Brussels.

It highlighted inspiring people and initiatives making a significant contribution to active ageing and solidarity between generations.

Awards were given in seven categories: Social Entrepreneurs, Workplaces for all Ages, Towards Age-Friendly Environments, generations@school, Life Story Challenge as well as written and audiovisual journalism.

Over 1,300 interesting and diverse submissions have been received from all over Europe to participate in the Awards.
