Ich Will Europa - inter- generational relations in EuropeAlready over 800 entries from all EU Member States, Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland have been submitted across the different Awards categories. Nevertheless, the European Commission has received many requests to offer participants some additional time to submit their initiatives, mostly due to the summer period.

The European Commission invites organisations and individuals promoting active ageing through their activities to participate in the European Year 2012 Awards.

Has your company improved the conditions for older workers? Has your municipality created better living environments for the ageing society? Are you a journalist and you have written an article about the EY2012 challenges and solutions? Do you want to share with the world an inspiring story about an active ager you know?

Nominations may be submitted in the following categories: Workplaces for all Ages, Towards Age-Friendly Environments, Social Entrepreneurs, Reporting on Ageing and Relations between Generations and Life Story Challenge.

All citizens of EU Member States and those of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway may take part. The finalists in each category will be invited by the European Commission to participate in the EY2012 Active Ageing Awards ceremony, which is planned to take place in November in Brussels.
