Discover SILVER SMEs’ 10th newsletter!

Did you know that by 2050 Greece, Cyprus, Sweden and Portugal would be the EU countries with the highest proportion of older adults in mountainous areas? This is what reveals the recent report of the Joint Research Centre, “The Demographic Landscape of EU Territories”.

SILVER SMEs held a peer review in December 2020 to select 23 best initiatives among the 70 good practices collected since 2018. These 23 best practices are inspiring examples of regional support to the Silver Economy sector in rural and mountainous areas. From adapted housing to intergenerational activities, home deliveries and tourism, and much more, these examples illustrate the diversity of goods and services that can be developed to enhance the well-being of rural older adults. SILVER SMEs has compiled these best practices into 3 thematic brochures to discover in this newsletter!

Save the date! SILVER SMEs invites you to its mid-term conference on Challenges and solutions to cope with ageing in rural Europe: the role of the Silver Economy, which will take place online on April 21, 2021, from 09:45 to 13:00. By giving the floor to European and regional policymakers, researchers and stakeholders, this event will discuss demographic changes in rural and mountainous Europe, showcase inspiring initiatives and explore how European and regional policies can cope with the challenges of ageing in these areas. You will find more information on this event in this newsletter.
