Demographic change and healthy ageing: a European Parliament perspective.
By Brando Benifei, Sirpa Pietikäinen
This panel will present the perspectives of two Members of the European Parliament, MEP Ms Sirpa Pietikainen and MEP, Mr Brando Benifei, on some of the consequences of an ageing society in Europe: the societal pact between generations in Europe and its implications on the inclusion in society of the older adults, the life-long learning, the knowledge sharing and the sustainability of the pensions schemes; on the other hand the sessions will draw the attention of these two politicians on the ongoing digitalization of society and to what extent it can benefit for the older adults and the social and health care systems in Europe. The session can be of particular interest for those who are following the debate around the European framework programme and are keen to be up to date with the most recent political approaches to ageing.

Learning from the Covid 19 pandemic and strategies for the future
By Giovanni Lamura, Athanese Benetos, Ricardo Rodrigues
This session will present first-hand concrete effects that Covid has had on the life of older adults in Europe. This idea came out during a series of video interviews we took in the last months with geriatricians. We found out a plethora of unexplored and untouched issues, spanning from further social isolation to the increased negative impact of chronic diseases. During the exchange, we will trigger a conversation on the mental and psychological angle as well as the implications of the social care areas of municipalities, which have been disrupted by Covid. Several regions and cities are not able to cope with the emergency and cannot ensure the usual social care services such as food delivery, basic health care, lifelong learning etc.. This session is highly interesting for politicians, administrators and business operators who want to have a view and comparison of different countries in Europe.

Understanding wellbeing in an ageing society: how appropriate are current measures of wellbeing across the changing life course?
By Ritu Sadana, Johanna Cresswell-Smith
This session will explore how research can improve our understanding of wellbeing as it impacts on people across the expanding lifespan. There is growing agreement among policymakers that the pursuit of individual wellbeing is a legitimate objective of public policy. As a result, many measures of wellbeing have been developed and are in use. However, how appropriate are these in measuring wellbeing across the changing life course.
