AGE message to the 3rd Annual Convention of Poverty and Social Exclusion, 26-27 November 2013, Brussels

“Growth must benefit all age and population groups, including the most vulnerable!”

Ahead of the event, AGE sent a press release to convey its message and call on the European Commission and Member States to consider public spending in adequate and sustainable social protection for all as an investment for growth. We also recommended poverty figures to be broken down per age and gender groups in order to highlight the need to address the persisting poverty among older women and very old people.
