50+ Hellas is a Non - governmental and not- for- profit Organization which aims to improve the quality of life of those over 50 years of age in Greece, within a more equal society and through actions and activities affecting all aspects of life. In cooperation with other social partners, it supports and promotes the rights of older people to equal treatment in society, particularly in employment, in health and medical care, in their independence and decent living standards, in their right to participate as full citizens in decision making as well as in the development of policies affecting them. The organization also promotes the interests and support of dependent older people and their families and the professionals who care for them.

At the European level, 50+ Hellas is a dynamic member of AGE PLATFORM Europe http://www.age-platform.eu  which represents European citizens over 50 years of age. Elizabeth Mestheneos, one of the founder members of 50+Hellas, served as elected President of AGE Platform from 2008 to 2011.



>> 2012 - European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between generations



2012 is the European Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations. A chance for all of us to reflect on how Europeans are living longer and staying healthier than ever before — and to realise the opportunities that represents.

Active ageing can give the baby-boom generation and tomorrow's older adults the opportunity to:
  • stay in the workforce and share their experience
  • keep playing an active role in society
  • live as healthy and fulfilling lives as possible.
It is also key to maintaining solidarity between generations in societies with rapidly increasing numbers of older people.

The challenge for politicians and stakeholders will be to improve opportunities for active ageing in general and for living independently, acting in areas as diverse as employment, health care, social services, adult learning, volunteering, housing, IT services or transport.

The European Year seeks to raise awareness of the issues and the best ways of dealing with them. But most of all it seeks to encourage all policymakers and stakeholders to set themselves goals and take action to meet them. 2012 should go beyond debating; it should start bringing tangible results.

Eurobarometer survey Active Ageing

As the 2012 European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations gets off the ground, the European Commission has published a survey on active ageing to understand citizens' views and attitudes towards older people. The survey also covers the contribution of older people in the workplace and society, as well as how best to promote the active role of older people in society.
