  1. I fully endorse the European-Age Manifesto.I am very happy of Dr Ursula von der Leyen Election’s as European Commissioner. Allow-me to add that it is time our EU to acquire in its Bureaux and Committees a permanent
    European Institut ,or Council of Ageing,where the problems,issues and ideas of Ageing will be faced on a peramanent and scientific way and new issues like :Digital education,Health Literacy, Migration with its multi-dimensional concommitements and how to oraganize a European Society with AllAges will be faced and ellaborated .
    Thank you for your consideration I wish to our new European Commissioner Dr Ursula von der Leyen,who had been a very successful Minister in the Domain of Social Affaires with pioneering work in the domain of Family-(Books for young
    students ) every success.
