AGE Platform Europe is a European network of more than 150 organisations of and for people aged 50+, representing directly over 40 million older people in Europe. It works on a wide range of policy areas that impact on older and retired people, such as anti-discrimination, employment of older workers and active ageing, social protection, pension reforms, social inclusion, health, elder abuse, intergenerational solidarity, research, accessibility of public transport and of the build environment, and new technologies (ICT). AGE Platform Europe takes also active part in several EU projects, as in the ESCAPE project.

The purpose of AGE work is to voice and promote the interests of the 190 million inhabitants aged 50+ in the European Union and to raise awareness of the issues that concern them most. AGE also aims to inform older people on their rights as EU citizen or resident and on EU policy making processes and recent EU policy development.
