Week Ahead at the United Nations: the European perspective
From August 26, 2013 until August 28, 2013
The Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH) will organise on 26-28 August 2013 the international symposium "Work, Wellbeing and Wealth: Active Ageing at Work.”
The vision of "an active life while ageing" is becoming one of the major social challenges in Europe. The European Union has launched the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) ”More Years, Better Lives – the Potential and Challenges of Demographic Change" in order to make a full impact assessment and development of appropriate answers to the upcoming demographic challenges. Among its five focus areas a research agenda on "Work and Productivity" is under preparation.
The aim of the international conference is to bring together researchers, experts and European networks in the area and to present and discuss the major research & development needs and solutions.
Among the topics to be discussed at the symposium:
The Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe - UNRIC provides information on UN activities to the countries of the region. It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information. Its outreach activities extend to all segments of society and joint campaigns, projects and events are organized with partners including the EU, governments, the media, NGOs, schools and local authorities.
