Description:

This website is dedicated to raising awareness of healthy ageing within the context of the EY 2012, especially the important role health promotion plays, in contributing to a healthier, more active EU population for the future. The new website will highlight key factors such as, promoting healthy diets, physical activities, social relations and meaningful activities necessary for ageing healthily throughout a person’s life. It will showcase a number of local, regional and national projects dedicated to promoting older peoples health while also identifying a number of EU policy initiatives and instruments that are available to promote healthy ageing. 

In addition EuroHealthNet, commissioned by the Federal Centre for Health Education - in Germany -  has published a new report on healthy and active ageing. The report highlights a selection of programmes, good practices and other resources for promoting and sustaining the well-being of “younger” older people, with a specific reference to socially deprived and migrant groups.

Healthy ageing is the process of optimising opportunities for physical, social and mental health to enable older people to take an active part in society without discrimination and to enjoy an independent and good quality of life. It requires a multi-facetted approach, with many different aspects of across the life course playing a role.
