AGE campaign for the European elections 2019 was officially launched on 20 February 2019 at an Inter-Party debate in the European Parliament premises in Brussels, where we presented our seven recommendations to current Members of the European Parliament (MEPs).
Hosted by MEP Jean Lambert (Greens), the event was the opportunity for AGE to shed light on older people’s expectations and engage in a debate with EU decision-makers on the way forward to build an age-friendly Europe after May 2019. Besides Mrs. Lambert, Ivo Vajgl (ALDE) and Brando Benifei (S&D) joined the retrospective session around the achievements of the European Parliament since 2014.
An Hermans, President of the European Seniors’ Union (Seniors in the EPP) and Jos Bertrand, President, European Senior’s Organisation (Socialist Seniors) presented their priorities for the next mandate of the European Parliament while AGE Manifesto was handed over to all candidates by AGE Secretary General, Anne-Sophie Parent.
Three parties took part in the prospective discussions with the participation of Christian Kremer (EPP), Evelyne Huytebroeck (Greens), and Josef Weidenholzer (PES) that reflected on the path to address the ageing challenge.
