European Union – OECD – WHO – Finland

Silver Economy Forum

The Silver Economy Forum is a global event that also brings in a strong EU dimension through Finland's Presidency of the European Union. The Forum is built on a strong and viable partnership between the public and private sectors. As an intersectoral gathering at the highest level for global and European institutions including OECD, the European Union and the World Health Organization, it represents the first-ever global business/government conference focused on policies for the silver economy. Furthermore, it marks a defining moment towards the WHO’s launch of the Decade of Healthy Ageing, 2021-2030. In the panel discussion on “The New World of Work”, Managing Director Axel Börsch-Supan presented SHARE research and discussed policy implications with fellow stakeholders from policy, business, research and civil society.
