2012: European Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations

January 2012 saw The Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations begin as the Year of Volunteering drew to a close. A summary of the main activities carried out in 2011 can be seen here through the official end of year video.

Both Volunteering and Active Ageing are closely linked to the Sport and Active Leisure sector and 2011 has already produced some valuable resources regarding Volunteering. EOSE was active in the field of volunteering in 2011 through it’s involvement in the Training 4 Volunteers project led by the Leadership Academy of the German Olympic Sports Confederation which seeks to answer two research questions: How can the individual be empowered to meet the requirements and increasing quality standards of the sports organisation and how should instruments of human resource management be applied within voluntary sports organisations to make volunteering in sport a valuable and attractive experience for the individual?
This project will come to an end in June 2012 so we invite you to consult the project’s website for further information.
The 2012 Year of Active Ageing and Solidarity between Generations will seek to create opportunities for citizens to stay in the workforce and share their experience, keep playing an active role in society, live as healthy and fulfilling lives as possible.

Specifically this will require policymakers and key stakeholders to work together in order to create possibilities for living independently, employment, health care, social services, adult learning, volunteering, housing, IT services and transport.
