Active ageing and solidarity between generations: European Year 2012 Awards launched
As part of the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations 2012, the European Commission has just launched the European Year 2012 Awards in order to celebrate organisations, including local and regional authorities, and individuals that promote active ageing and solidarity between generations through their activities.
The EY2012 Awards, of which CEMR is a partner, includes six categories: Workplaces for all Ages, Towards Age-Friendly Environment, Social Entrepreneurs, Reporting on Ageing and Relations between Generations, Life Story Challenge, Generations@school.
The competition (with the exception of the Generations@school category) is open to all citizens of EU Member States until 1 September 2012.
The finalists in each category will be invited to the EY2012 Active Ageing Awards ceremony, which is planned to take place in Brussels in November.
More information on the Awards and on how to participate is available on the award website http://europa.eu/ey2012/.
