This Active Ageing Index (AAI) research project is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion and implemented together with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), and the European Centre Vienna.
The aim of this project is to develop an Active Ageing Index (AAI) that will help to measure the untapped potential of senior people across 27 EU Member States and beyond.
The index measures the extent to which older people can realise their full potential in terms of employment, participation in social and cultural life and independent living. It also also measures the extent to which the environment they live in enables seniors to lead an active life.
The index will allow to measure and monitor active ageing outcomes at the country level with a breakdown by gender.
The project is undertaken within the framework of the 10th anniversary of the 2nd World Assembly on Ageing, the 2nd cycle of review and appraisal of the implementation of Madrid International Plan of Action on Ageing/Regional Implementation Strategy and the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations 2012.
The AAI was launched in Cyprus at the European Year 2012 Closing Conference on 10 December.
