SILVER




Description


Europe faces an ageing population, which impacts directly the labour market composition and dynamics. In 2000, 40% of the total population from 55 to 64 years were active in the labour market. In 2019, this same indicator rose to 63%. (from EUROSTAT database).

According to the European Commission, between 2016 and 2060, it is estimated that the working age population (15 to 64) in the EU will decline by 11.6%.

According to the European Commission, between 2016 and 2060, it is estimated that the working age population (15 to 64) in the EU will decline by 11.6%.

In other words, the European labour market is becoming older and may start shrinking in the upcoming decades. This scenario imposes many risks to our social systems, since a smaller labour force may not provide for the needs of an ageing population.

SILVER project aims to create a coordinated response for the promotion of a career in the third age, that addresses a two-fold ambition:

_From one side, managers, HR and other interested professionals are given awareness, strategies and learning tools to a structured way to contribute to career extension or

preparation of retirement, enhancing their readiness to support older workers;

_From another side, older workers themselves are aware of challenges of ageing and empowered for an active ageing within the workplace, either to keep working for longer or to support a smooth transition to retirement.
