AGE Platform Europe held its General Assembly in Brussels on 2-3 December 2014, followed by its Annual conference on 4th December. The events were the occasion for AGE members to share their views and experience at national level, agree on new next year's priorities and debate on ongoing ageing related issues at EU level with a high-level panel of speakers.
