knyga aging europePopulation ageing is a secular challenge which will strain the fabric of Europe’s societies.

• Ever more retirees will demand pensions that will have to be financed through taxes and pension contributions from ever fewer younger workers. Will this create tensions between generations?
• Health is improving but at high costs. Are our societies willing to bear these costs?
• Older workers have accumulated a lot of experience. Will this, however, offset the loss of innovative energy by the young?
• The oldest old are the fastest growing population segment. Will there be sufficient capacity for long-term care when it will be needed? Will informal caregivers (usually daughters) feel lonelier, more socially excluded and more depressive?
• Will the digital divide create increasing tensions between older workers with good computer skills who will be happier – and retire later – and those unskilled who are left behind?

These are some of the key questions pondered by researchers from all over Europe and Israel and contained in a new book on “Ageing in Europe – Supporting Policies for an Inclusive Society” which was presented on the 29th of October in Brussels.
