Abstract

What does „active ageing“ mean? How is the trend to “active ageing” of the generation 50+ distributed in countries and communities of the European Union? The article reports some results of ESS-data and a survey which was conducted in several European cities. Criteria for “active ageing” in this investigation are: employment rate, preparedness to participate in skill enhancement, civil engagement, social contacts and a active-orientation. The project was funded by the EU-commission and the goal was to develop an information system for the local level of communities. The technical base was the DUVA-System and the incorporated knowledge was concentrated on questions connected with the demographic change.
