Welcome to the Covenant on Demographic Change's newsletter!
First of all, we wish all a very happy new year! Hopefully more peaceful and full of new fruitful projects.
As for the Covenant, 2017 will be a key year since we are busy preparing its future strategy in order to feed in the first General Assembly that should be held by June. The next month will also be exciting with the preparation of the launch of the first EU Silver Economy Awards powered by the SEED project.
These EU awards will support the movement initiated by the European Commission through the Silver Economy Strategy and the Blueprint presented at the EU Summit on Digital Innovation for Active and Healthy Ageing in December 2016. This event was a great opportunity to promote the Covenant on Demographic Change with the help of some of its members who actively participated in the summit and related events.
Let's seize all the opportunities that 2017 will offer to continue promoting age-friendly environments together!
