AGE Platform Europe is an empowered coalition of older people’s organisations. Together, we ensure older people are at the European table, and participate in the debates to an inclusive society.
In times of pandemic more than ever, AGE celebrates longevity as one of the greatest achievements of humanity. Guided by values of equality and participation, we seek to combat ageism, promote human rights throughout the life course, and create equal opportunities to live full and dignified life.
Older people are the experts of their own lives. Our community is hugely diverse. But our difference is our strength when we speak together. As self-advocates, we have the potential to bring know-how and experience – not to mention countless hours of caring and volunteer work that help society function.
A healthy society provides support at times of vulnerability, while providing space for all its members to contribute. Let’s bridge the generation gap to build an age equal society.
