Working better, for longer

Working better, for longer

Europe's population is ageing fast, in other words. In 2010 there were slightly more than 87 million people over 65, or some 17.4 % of the total population. Compare that with the figures from 1985, when there were 59.3 million people who were 65 and over – 12.8 % of the total. And the number is expected to increase still further relative to people of working age, doubling by 2060. This is a challenge, but also a chance to use the competences and abilities of older people.
