The Conference on the Future of Europe started last Spring and is now entering a new phase: citizens’ panels will start discussing and defining recommendations to be submitted to the European Parliament, the Council and the European Commission in early 2022. To nourish the debates a digital platform is open for every citizen to share ideas on Europe’s challenges and priorities.
We want to take this opportunity to promote our proposal for a European Age Equality Strategy drafted as a contribution to the Green Paper on Ageing. Such a strategy would provide a fair frame for all age groups to be fully part of Europe in the future.
Our proposal is based on the following principles:
- Age equality is for everyone. We are all entitled to the same human rights and should all be able to receive the support we need to face our respective challenges.
- Age equality is every day. Because each day shapes our ageing a little more, we should all be able to enjoy equal opportunities to participate in society, enjoy healthy living conditions, learn and work, and access care and support services when needed.
- Age equality is a practice. Our values of justice and solidarity require practice. We need to equip ourselves with the policy and legal frameworks that backup these values and give us the tools to shape a cohesive EU.
