Active ageing can give the baby-boom generation and tomorrow's older adults the opportunity to: stay in the workforce and share their experience; keep playing an active role in society; live as healthy and fulfilling lives as possible. It is also key to maintaining solidarity between generations in societies with rapidly increasing numbers of older people.
The challenge for politicians and stakeholders will be to improve opportunities for active ageing in general and for living independently, acting in areas as diverse as employment, health care, social services, adult learning, volunteering, housing, IT services or transport.
