This call for proposals was addressed to AGE full members to:

  • organise meetings, debates, and events with older people, with political parties and MEP candidates to foster age equality, to achieve rights-based programmes for the European elections and to foster a lasting dialogue with older people’s organisations.
  • develop and disseminate communication materials around age equality, the protection of human rights and other materials underpinning the participation of older people in the campaign for the elections of the European Parliament.

Three applications were received on time, screened, evaluated and granted.

  1. CTAO-logo CTAO – The Cyprus Third Age Observatory’s project intends to gain support from 8 current and candidate MEPs in Cyprus on AGE’s manifesto, and to encourage the public to vote for candidates who support AGE’s recommendations in the upcoming European elections.

A live-streamed conference witch present candidate MEPs, 7 high-level figures from the political parties and stakeholders from Cyprus and other European countries will be financed. The event will discuss AGE recommendations for active, healthy, and dignified ageing and encourage participants to publicly adopt and commit to these recommendations.
