In order to promote the realisation of the calls included in the AGE Manifesto, we have started our campaign for a new intergroup on demographic change and solidarity between generations. An intergroup on demographic change would allow to discuss important transversal topics: demographic change, active and healthy ageing, the future of social protection, the emerging EU Silver Economy, age-friendly environments and intergenerational solidarity and a sustainable future for all generations
An intergroup is an unofficial body of the European Parliament, bringing together MEPs from at least three political groups who want to build a common understanding of an issue of their interest. The intergroup would be a continuation of the intergroup on active ageing and solidarity between generations, which existed in 2014-2020 and previous intergroups reaching back until 1982. Currently, a few MEPs are spearheading the campaign for an intergroup, the decision on its re-establishment will be held this autumn.
AGE has created a flyer (to the left) to call for support on an intergroup on demographic change and solidarity between generations.
