Society is facing a global ageing process resulting from a progressive increase in life expectancy and a reduction in birth rates, all of which is leading to an alteration of the population pyramids with major social and economic consequences.
The progressive increase of the population over 65 years old has become a determining factor in the European and world social panorama. The future scenarios established by the European Commission in the 2015 Ageing Report (The Ageing Report 2015) foresee a large increase in this segment of the population, which in 2060 will represent 30% of the European population.
It is time to change attitudes to ageing and promote cultural change. In this way we can help people to live longer, more active and independent lives, and also help our societies to take advantage of the opportunities inherent in a new social reality.
The International Centre on Ageing (CENIE) is a response to this phenomenon that is changing the world in which we live.
