The intention of the Guide is to present some good practice examples of civil dialogue on ageing issues including those that promote social inclusion in old age. The Guide also makes some proposals on how best to implement and participate in the civil dialogue process across all national
policy-making levels: from governmental level down through to regional and local level strategies and initiatives which aim to improve the daily lives of older people.
We want to use the opportunity of this European Year 2013 to highlight our work to promote a participative and inclusive democracy in Europe, and voice our recommendations for a stronger participation of older persons in society. In the following pages we will stress why and how AGE is working to strengthen civil dialogue on ageing and the involvement of older users in the production of solutions that suit their needs.
