In spring 2021, the Commission launched a consultation on ageing following the publication of its green paper. The increase in longevity opens up new opportunities for older persons if their fundamental rights are respected and society becomes more inclusive. However, the green paper did not address the issues of non-discrimination and equal rights for all ages. Both the Council[1] and Parliament[2] recently called for responses to be grounded in human rights principles and solidarity between generations.
