The old age population in the European Union
The demographic changes that are likely to be experienced in the European Union in the coming decades determine governments to find solutions in order to provide the sustainability of social public expenditures. We consider that the main aims of future policies should be creating better job opportunities and working conditions for the growing number of older people in Europe. It is very important to help older people play an active role in society and encourage healthy ageing and independent living. Retirement should happen at an older age but only if appropriate jobs are available for older generations. Consequently we reveal the demographic changes and propose the necessary policies which governments could make.
